Professor Kim Peters

Professor in Human Resource Management

Not Known


Streatham Court, University of Exeter, Rennes Drive, Exeter, EX4 4PU, UK

I completed my Masters and PhD in Social and Organisational Psychology at the University of Melbourne. I worked in the University of Exeter School of Psychology as a postdoctoral research fellow and lecturer, before returning to Australia to work in the University of Queensland’s School of Psychology. In 2019, I joined the Department of Management in the University of Exeter Business School.

I have two major programmes of research. The first explores how people’s perceptions of self and other fuel their motivation to lead and follow. The second studies the flow of reputational information through social networks and its implications for social beliefs, behaviours and bonds. This work has been published in leading journals in management and psychology, including Psychological Science, Psychological Bulletin, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Management and Leadership Quarterly, as well as articles and reports for the public and private sector (e.g., European Parliament, Harvard Business Review and BMJ Careers).
