Name: Bryan Stroube

- You have just joined LBS as one of our newest faculty members. Can you tell us a little bit about your research?
I’m interested in understanding how conflicting motives influence organizations and markets. Right now I’m primarily looking at this in the context of crowdfunding behaviour.
- What does your typical work day look like?
I currently spend most of my days working on existing research projects, which involves everything from working with data, running statistics, and writing up results, to talking with co-authors and reading new research by others in the field. One great thing about this job is the diversity of activities that is required to do research.
- Where is your favourite place in London and why?
I’m still exploring the parks, which are just incredible. I recently made my first visit to Hampstead Heath.
- What is top of your bucket list?
Right now I’m focused on seeing Europe. The Festival of Lights in Lyon is next on the list of weekend trips.
- Who would play you in the film of your life?
- Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
The Beatles. I live near Abbey Road Studios, so it could be a neighbourhood party.
- What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
That it’s important to sometimes explore without a detailed plan.
- What do you consider your greatest achievement?
That I found a career I love.
- What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Since moving to London, “LOOK RIGHT ?”
- Tell us something surprising about you
I like scenic modes of travel. I arrived in the UK via the Queen Mary 2, and I once took the Trans-Manchurian railway from Beijing to Moscow.
