Jemima A. Frimpong’s research focuses on the complex dynamics of decision making, and the intersection of information processing and discrimination. She has worked extensively in healthcare organizations, examining how managerial attributes affect the adoption of innovations, treatment practices, and ultimately the health of patients.

Another stream of her research investigates the impact of stereotyping and prejudice on managerial decision making. She is particularly interested in studying how managers process information about job applicants and employees, and how these processes might lead to discrimination and other adverse outcomes. She is conducting a series of lab and survey-based experiments designed to elicit the dynamics of biases in hiring, evaluation, and promotion decisions.
