Patrick Bergemann is an Assistant Professor of Organization and Management at the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine. He studies the ways in which individuals, organizations, and states respond to wrongdoing, as they seek to stop its occurrence and hold those responsible accountable. One of his main interests is whistleblowing, where he seeks to understand how social relations influence the willingness to report others, and what prevents some people from coming forward.
His research has been published in the American Journal of Sociology, American Sociological Review, Organization Science, Management Science and the Academy of Management Review. His book, Judge Thy Neighbor: Denunciations in the Spanish Inquisition, Romanov Russia, and Nazi Germany, was published by Columbia University Press.
Prior to joining UC-Irvine, Patrick was an Assistant Professor at the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. He received his B.A. in Economics from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University.
