Fong Keng-Highberger is an Assistant Professor of Strategy, Management, and Organisation at Nanyang Business School at Nanyang Technological University. She obtained her BSc in Computer Engineering at Northwestern University, MBA at Dartmouth College, and PhD in Management (Organizational Behavior) from University of Washington prior to joining NTU. Additionally, she has also served as a consultant for multiple U.S. and international organizations including University of Washington, Swedish, and Seattle Children’s Hospitals, Beijing Red Star Company, Autodesk, and Carter & Burgess (now Jacobs).
Dr. Keng-Highberger's research interests lie in the intersection of three main research domains: (a) business and behavioral ethics, (b) leadership, and (c) decision making in organizations. More specifically, she examines psychological and cultural predictors of both commission (e.g., abusive and punishment behaviors) and omission (e.g., moral decision avoidance, moral procrastination, laissez-faire leadership) forms of (un)ethical decision-making and behavior.

In conducting research across these three domains of interest, Dr. Keng-Highberger is proficient in a range of conceptual, methodological, and analytical techniques, including hierarchical linear modeling, (hierarchical) structural equation modeling with MPlus, Lisrel, and Amos, polynomial regression analysis, cognitive priming, and experience sampling methodology.
