Veronique Tran is Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior at ESCP Europe, Paris Campus. She is a graduate of the University of Lausanne in Political Science. She earned her Doctorate in Psychology from the University of Geneva (Switzerland) with the Geneva Emotion Research Group directed by Prof. Klaus Scherer. Her primary research focus was to examine the interaction of emotions with decision-making processes in management teams. During her post-doctoral studies in the Industrial/Organizational area of the Department of Psychology at The Pennsylvania State University, she had the opportunity to research creativity and innovation processes and how they unfold across levels of organizations. While her research interests continue to include topics such as emotional climate and team dynamics, she has developed research interests in the area of emotion socialization and emotion regulation. After spending 6 months sabbatical at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences (Geneva, Switzerland), this line of research led her to direct her research efforts towards the role of emotion in the luxury industry, with investigations bridging neuroscience and management.
