McKenzie Rees joined the Mendoza College of Business as a postdoctoral teaching and research associate in fall 2015. Her research focuses on three areas related to ethical decision making in competitive contexts: 1) the biases that affect individual’s ethical decision making, 2) the ways in which various roles in the organization influence ethical behavior, and 3) the obligations and responsibilities that individuals feel in leadership roles.

Rees, who previously worked in the nonprofit industry as a development director, teaches courses related to conflict management, specifically focusing on the use of negotiations as a conflict management strategy. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Utah.
