Katie Badura is an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior in the Scheller College of Business at Georgia Tech. She received her Ph.D. in Organization and Human Resources Management from the State University of New York at Buffalo.

Her research includes two primary lines of inquiry: leadership emergence and personality. In particular, she investigates the process through which individuals emerge as leaders within organizations and how personality impacts employee, team, and firm-level outcomes. She is also interested in understanding the role that surface level individual differences (e.g., gender; disability; race; age) have in the workplace.

Her work has been featured in top academic outlets including the Academy of Management Journal, the Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, and Psychological Bulletin.
