Research Projects

Here is a sample of my ongoing/recent research projects. The goal is not to provide a comprehensive list of everything I study, nor to present details of a particular study, but to offer a quick look at my program of research.


1. Personality and adaptability
  • Personality in teams – how leader proactive personality and team members' need for approval influence team perception and performance
  • Personality and work-family - how personality drive changes in work-family conflict, and how work family conflict leads to changes in personality
2. Transfer of training
  • Transfer of management training - how supervisor support interacts with trainee personality to influence transfer of hybrid management training
  • Newcomer informal learning - how supervisor empowerment interacts with trainee goal orientation to influence informal learning and subsequent training transfer
3. Personality + Transfer of training
  • Transfer of voluntary training over time – how personality and affective training outcomes influence transfer curves

Aside from the content areas above, I am also interested in a methodological area: psychological measurement, which stems from my interest in personality and the desire to accurately measure it.


Response Effort

  • How to detect and deter insufficient effort responding to surveys
  • What effects insufficient effort responding may have on survey and test data
