Dr. Eva Zedlacher is Assistant Professor of Management at the Department of Business and Management. She joined Webster Vienna Private University in 2019. Before joining Webster she worked as pre- and post-doc researcher at Vienna University of Technology and in the field of organizational development at two large Austrian-based organizations.

Eva Zedlacher’s core research focus lies in the organizational analysis of organizational (mis)behavior. In her Ph.D. thesis, she investigated the prevalence and normalization of workplace bullying in highly gendered organizational/professional cultures (military, academia, etc.).

In her current research, she is interested in how organizational third parties make sense of bullying allegations and how organizations can best intervene at an early stage of the bullying process.

Moreover, she is also participating in a cross-cultural project on rural tourism and stakeholder engagement in Serbia and Austria.
