Ruthanne Huising

Professor Huising is Professor of Management and Organizations. An ethnographer of work and organizations, she studies how organizations respond to external pressures to change and the implications of these changes for professional control and expertise. Across her various projects she has observed how organizations accommodate regulatory change (Human Pathogens and Toxins Act), auditing fads (Environmental Management Systems), and efficiency efforts (Ontario perioperative coaching program) and the complex responses of scientists, biosafety officers, health physicists, surgeons, nurses, and administrators. She has published her work in Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, and Regulation & Governance. She is a Senior Editor at Organization Science. Professor Huising received her Ph.D. from the Sloan School of Management at M.I.T.
