Duanyi Yang

Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Labor Relations, Law, and History at Cornell University ILR School. My research investigates how organizational policies operate within different institutional contexts. My work illustrates the challenges facing the disadvantaged workers and investigates how innovative human resources policies and initiatives affect both workers’ experiences and their capacities to exercise voice and pursue their goals at work.

I received my PhD from the Institute for Work and Employment Research at MIT Sloan in 2020. A copy of my CV can be found here.
