Dorothea Roumpi is an Assistant Professor of Human Resource Management in the School of Labor and Employment Relations. She received her Ph.D. in Management from the University of Arkansas, Sam M. Walton College of Business. She holds a Master’s in Human Resource Management and a Bachelor’s in Economics from Athens University of Economics and Business (Greece). Her research bridges the micro-macro divide by focusing on the critical role human capital and human resource management (HRM) deployments play in creating and maintaining organizational competitive advantage. Within this stream of research, she explores the role of HRM practices and systems of HRM practices in creating demand- and supply-side mobility constraints. Her second research stream focuses on the diffusion of HRM practices across organizations. Her work has led to publications in the Human Resource Management Journal and the Africa Journal of Management, along with presentations at several major conferences, such as the annual meetings of the Academy of Management, Strategic Management Society, Southern Management Association, and Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology. She has received research grants, such as the Strategic Research Foundation Dissertation Research Grant (Strategic Management Society). She currently teaches International Human Resource Studies at the undergraduate level.
