Joseph Billingsley, Ph.D. joined the Poole College of Management from Miami where he received his doctorate degree in psychology with a concentration on quantitative psychology.

Billingsley’s research focuses on the cooperation and altruism, the mechanisms underlying reconciliation and relationship repair, how kinship influences cooperation, religiosity and prosocial behavior, and social categorization. His research has been published in accredited journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Royal Society Open Science, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, and Evolution and Human Behavior.

Billingsley is currently working with Professors Jeff Pollack and Jon Carr who were awarded a two-year grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation to study the impact of an entrepreneur’s social network embeddedness and engagement on subsequent venture success and the entrepreneurship ecosystem.
