Areas of Study

Organizational Behavior and Theory


Pranav Gupta is a fourth year doctoral student in the Organizational Behavior and Theory group in the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. He studies the emergence of collective intelligence (transactive memory and attentional control) in teams as well as the underlying cognitive processes in digitally augmented teams. His research involves triangulating a phenomenon via a multi-method approach: experiments, large-scale data-mining/archival and agent-based computer simulation models. Currently, he is investigating how 'attentional control' emerges in teams to achieve high performance.
