Amy Kristof-Brown was named dean of the Henry B. Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa in 2020. Amy received her Ph.D. in organizational behavior and human resource management from the University of Maryland in 1997. Since that time, she has been employed at the Henry B.

Her research interests focus on the compatibility or fit between individuals and their work environments. This has led her to study how impression management relates to person-job and person-organization fit in job interviews, person-team compatibility, strategies to reduce misfit, person-country fit for expatriates, and top management team-CEO goal compatibility.
