Hi. I am Övül Sezer

I am a Researchera Scientista Teachera Professora Comedianan Immigrant


I am a behavioral scientist and a stand-up comedian who observes life with wonder and humor.

During the day, I am an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where I teach Negotiations and Managerial Decision Making. Late at night, I perform stand-up routines in comedy clubs. I apply the same observational tools to both jobs: I identify a particular human behavior that strikes me as odd, interesting, or confusing, and either study it in-depth using experiments or describe it with humor.
