Personal profile

Research interests

I received my PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Purdue University in 1978. I am a Professor of Management at Bond Business School and have previously held Faculty posts at Texas A&M University, the University of Baltimore, and the National University of Singapore.

 My teaching areas include organisational behaviour and human resource management. I am an industrial psychologist, who has studied employee responses to performance feedback, organizational socialization, attitude-behaviour relationships in the workplace, and emotions and well-being at work. I was among the first to use experience sampling methodology to study within-person momentary processes at work.

I am currently collaborating with March To of Hong Kong Baptist University in two studies of 'Emotion and creativity in work teams'.
