Anna Brzykcy joined the Chair of Research and Science Management in January 2019 as a postdoctoral researcher. She leads the research project „Fördert Fürsorge für Angehörige fürsorgliche Führung?“ together with Prof. Claudia Peus.

This project is part of the research network „ForGenderCare“ of the Bavarian Research Alliance (Bayrischer Forschungsverbund). In December 2018 Anna defended her PhD in Management at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland with a dissertation titled, "Comparing workplace experiences of persons with and without disabilities: The role of labeling and work flexibility". She earned her M. Sc. in Psychology from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.

Previously she studied German Philology and Psychology at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland) and Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Anna’s work currently focusses on the effects of work flexibility and stigma with health and policy implications. In 2018, she won the best paper award at the Annual Meeting of the German Academic Association for Business Research.
