Her research has appeared in the Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Learning & Education, and the Journal of Organizational Change Management.

A British citizen, Jennifer earned a PhD in Organisational Behaviour from INSEAD. She also holds an MBA from IMD, Switzerland, and a BSc in genetics from Nottingham University, UK. Prior to joining INSEAD, she was a Post-Doctoral Fellow of Organisational Behaviour at the Harvard Business School. Her husband, Gianpiero Petriglieri is also an Associate Professor at INSEAD and is an expert on Leadership and Learning in the workplace.
In our conversation, we get into the details of the key questions around the three transitions that Jennifer speaks about that most couples go through. Transition 1) "How do we make it work" when we move from parallel tracks to a single track. Transition 2)"What do we want to become" as couples navigate mid-life. Transition 3) "Who are we” as a couple.
