Elizabeth Mullen is an Associate Professor of Management at San Jose State University. Her research uses experimental social psychological methods to investigate questions involving justice and ethics. In particular, her work on organizational justice investigates the roles that people’s emotions, values, and moral convictions play in shaping their perceptions of fairness and reactions to transgressions. In addition, her work on ethics focuses on how individuals regulate and evaluate their own and others’ ethical behavior.

Elizabeth’s research has appeared in numerous scholarly journals and has been funded by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues. She is an Associate Editor of Social Justice Research and has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Social Psychological and Personality Science, and Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy.
