Andy LoignonSenior Research Scientist


    Andy has over a decade of experience working as an organizational scientist identifying data-driven solutions that help companies address some of their most pressing challenges while also advancing the existing research on important topics. Prior to joining CCL, Andy was a member of the faculty at Louisiana State University.

    Andy’s research interests and expertise centers on four main topics: work groups and teams, social class in the workplace, quantitative methods, and informal forms of leadership. As such, some of his most recent work has focused on how people from different social class backgrounds can obtain, or be denied, informal positions of influence within teams.

    Current Role

    As a Research Scientist at CCL, Andy is currently working on projects related to work teams and emerging leaders. For work teams, he is exploring how groups engage in different actions and processes in unique ways to reach their objectives as well as how these processes intersect with informal networks in the teams. For emerging leaders, his research is focused, in part, on how young people can overcome socioeconomic barriers and thrive as effective leaders.
