Personal profile

Research Interests

Leslie DeChurch’s research investigates teamwork and leadership in organizations.

Professor DeChurch leads the ATLAS lab: Advancing Teams, Leaders, and Systems. ATLAS explores the dynamics through which teams form, and how these dynamics affect their performance as teams, and their ability to work as larger organizational systems (multiteam systems). ATLAS conducts laboratory and online experiments, meta-analytic integrations, and field studies of teams and leaders to understand their core organizing processes. Such processes include: leadership networks, team cognition, team conflict and motivation, and team information sharing.

DeChurch's research seeks to build high-functioning teams that work in scientific innovation, space exploration, healthcare, and the military.
