I work as a research associate at HBS, where I assist professors in the finance unit and co-author management cases. Prior to the pandemic, I would arrive in the office within the Bloomberg Center on campus each day by 9 am. Throughout the day, I would meet with professors and collaborators to discuss workstreams and chat with colleagues during lunch. Since March, I– like most others – have been working from home. Instead of stopping by Starbucks on my way to work, I now pour myself instant coffee each morning. Remote work has led to more emails and Zoom calls, ending the day sometimes earlier or later than usual. My group lunches are replaced by cooking a simple dish mid-day, and after-work events turned into outdoor runs.
