Ph.D., M.A. Rice University
B.A. Davidson College


I am a Davidson alumnus specializing in industrial-organizational psychology and statistics. I joined the Psychology Department faculty in 2002 after receiving a B.A. (1996) from Davidson College and completing my M.A. (1999) and Ph.D. (2001) in industrial-organizational psychology at Rice University.

My research interests span a wide variety of topics including issues related to computerized testing (like the computerized GRE exam for graduate school), the effects of employee mentoring programs, predictors of leadership effectiveness, and the impact of diversity in organizations. I also conduct research on a variety of statistical and methodological issues.

I have published over 40 articles (often with student coauthors) in numerous scholarly outlets, such as the Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel PsychologyPsychological Methods, and Organizational Research Methods. I currently serve as the associate editor for both the Journal of Business and Psychology and Organizational Research Methods. I am also the chair of Education and Training for the Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychology, a past chair of the North Carolina Industrial-Organizational Psychology group, a faculty affiliate of the organizational science Ph.D. program at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte; and a member of the Association for Psychological Science, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the Academy of Management.
