Hi there! I am an Assistant Professor of Management in the College of Business and Economics at California State University, Northridge. Currently, I teach management and organizational behavior courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. My Ph.D. is from McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. My research interests could be broadly characterized as being in the area of employment relationships with two arching streams of research: (1) individual and team factors that influence work behavior and (2) non-standard employment relationships. I study factors such as the impact of emotions, personality, and organizational justice on task and contextual performance. My research on non-standard work arrangements includes contingent workers and volunteers. My research is published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior, International Journal of Selection and Assessment, and International Journal of Human Resource Management. I have also contributed chapters to several books including Underemployment: Psychological, Economic, and Social Challenges, Raising Student Engagement and Retention through Classroom Response Systems and Other Technologies, and Management and Organization of Temporary Agency Work. I have worked in human resources as a volunteer intern in Botswana, Africa and as an assistant at a non-profit organization. I have also worked in various managerial capacities in the health care and food service industries. I obtained my Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation in 2008. My personal interests include traveling, photography, hiking, and sports such as ultimate frisbee and snowboarding.
