While I am fascinated by many different areas of industrial/organizational psychology, my research over the past 15 years has largely focused on issues related to employee health, well-being and safety. In particular, I am interested in the topics of economic stress and job insecurity; accident under-reporting; and organizational safety climate and safety leadership behaviors. In addition, many of my research studies attempt to delineate the extent to which our findings generalize to other cultural contexts and to identify sociocultural variables that may explain any observed differences.
I invite you to explore the OHS Lab website to learn more about our research in these areas and how you can get involved! Many of our studies have been several student-initiated research projects. So, if you have a great idea for some I/O-related research, but don't see it described on this site, chances are you can still pursue your interests.
