MY RESEARCH

Broadly speaking, my research interests concentrate on factors that affect how people adapt to their work environment and other issues of person-environment fit. Admittedly, this description is somewhat vague, but should not be confused with my natural tendency toward abstraction. It’s simply pithy enough to insert into promotional materials. For those who want more specificity, I research workplace adaptability from a work stress and coping framework looking at both organizational and individual factors. These include job insecurity, job demands/characteristics, adaptive skills, and health and well-being. I have also researched prejudice and discrimination in the workplace. This work grew out of my more basic interest in personnel selection. Test bias in ability measures was my starting point but I have since done work on implicit attitudes and aversive racism. Admittedly and with regret, there is a notable gap in my publication record. Multitasking is not something at which I excel and jugging the responsibilities of being a Department Head with those of research and supervision was a challenge, to put it charitably. Then I jumped right in to developing an online Master’s program. Excuses aside, I am pleased to have a growing lab again with keen students.

Collaborations

None of my projects would have been possible without my collaborators. I have been fortunate to work with some of the best. In addition to looking at my list of publications, look at what my students have or are currently working on.

The topics of our recent projects include: Sexual harassment reporting Proactivity and innovation The job demand-job autonomy interaction Human resource practices and social media Job insecurity Supervisory conflict management styles I look forward to collaborating and publishing with more students in the coming years. Perhaps unwisely, I am always happy to entertain any research ideas that you want to float my way.
