She also conducts research on teamwork and organizational change. Her articles have appeared in such leading outlets as Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Organization Science, Personnel Psychology, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, Academy of Management Annals, Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior, Leadership Quarterly, and Organizational Research Methods. Dr. Hill serves on the editorial boards of Personnel Psychology and Organization Science

Dr. Hill teaches courses at the undergraduate, M.B.A., Ph.D., and executive education levels in the areas of organizational behavior, human resource management, leading change, leading teams, and leading the virtual/hybrid workforce.

Prior to her career in academia, Dr. Hill worked for multinational companies in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, and the United States. Her global, cross-functional business experience includes roles in information technology, six sigma quality improvement, organizational change, as well as corporate training and development.
