I am a PhD Candidate of Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology at the University of Calgary, in Canada. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Mount Allison University, and a Master of Science degree in I/O Psychology from the University of Calgary. I expect to complete my PhD in 2021.
My research primarily focuses on personnel selection; in particular, how to design interviews to make accurate judgments and predictions about job applicants. I also study the causes and effects of first impressions in the interview, and judgmental biases in the interview.
My second area of research focuses on the various forms of job performance and social behaviors at work. This includes, for example, the reasons that some people choose to help coworkers or take the initiative to perform extra work tasks. It also includes team/coworker communication behaviors.
Outlets publishing my work include the Journal of Business and Psychology, Journal of Personnel Psychology, Personnel Assessment and Decisions, Canadian Journal of Behavioural Science, and Learning and Individual Differences. I have also presented my work internationally at the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology and the European Association for Work and Organizational Psychology conferences, and within my own community at the Calgary Comic Expo and Calgary Nerd Nite.
Besides research, I have experience developing curricula and instructing research methods and statistics classes at the undergraduate and graduate post-secondary levels.
