About me

​Hi! I'm Xina (李曦纳, pronounced as "cinna" in "cinnamon"), PhD candidate in Management (Strategy) at INSEAD and a research affiliate at Wharton ESG Initiative. I am on the 2024-2025 job market.

My research focuses on how firms navigate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues with formal and informal corporate governance mechanisms such as incentive design, corporate culture, and leadership. My work has been published in Organization Science and Strategy Science.

I was a visiting scholar at Wharton in 2023. Before pursuing doctoral studies, I completed both my Master's and Bachelor's degrees at Peking University.
