“The Meredith P. Crawford Fellowship is one of the most renowned and competitive fellowships in human resources and organizational behavior,” said Tang. “It is a great honor for a graduate student to receive this fellowship. I feel motivated to be among the previous recipients, who have been my role models.”
One of those previous recipients is Q. Chelsea Song, who is now an assistant professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences of the College of Health and Human Sciences at Purdue University. In her letter recommending Tang for this year’s fellowship, she wrote: “Chen is leading a promising line of research aimed at advancing machine learning applications in organizational practice.”
Tang plans to use the Fellowship stipend to cover costs associated with the technology necessary to conduct his research, which primarily uses Monte Carlo simulation. “I am proud that my research is part of this effort in society to promote diversity and inclusion, and I thank HumRRO for their generosity in helping me pursue this goal,” he said.
In addition to HumRRO, Tang would like to thank his mentors and collaborators, Daniel A. Newman, Fritz Drasgow, James Rounds, Q. Chelsea Song, and Serena Wee.
Applications for next year’s Meredith P. Crawford Fellowship will open April 2023.
