Tina Davidson obtained a master degree in Sinology from KU Leuven (Minor in Economics) and a master degree in General Management at Vlerick Business School. She is PhD candidate in Human Resources and Organisational Behaviour at the Area People & Organisation of Vlerick Business School and has been a visiting scholar at Peking University (Beijing, China). She has conducted research on various topics such as feedback, creativity and team work.
Her present research interests lie within the domains of cross-cultural management and organisational citizenship behaviour or "extra-role behaviour". In her PhD research, which is funded by the Intercollegiate Centre for Management Science (ICM), she focuses on the emergence of organisational citizenship behaviour in the global context. More specifically, she examines what it means to ‘go the extra mile’ in differing national contexts, which individual and contextual determinants can foster this behaviour, and how this behaviour can influence organisational success.
At the 2013 AOM meeting (Orlando, USA), she received the Best Reviewer Award in recognition of exemplary service to the Organisational Behavior (OB) Division.
