Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests centre around the relationship between the individual and the organisation. From an occupational psychology perspective this covers issues such as organisational commitment, identification, and the nature of the psychological contract. From an HRM perspective, issues of organisational justice, managerialism and the (mis)use of power in organisations become prominent.

Teaching Activity

On the undergraduate programme, I am module leader and teach on Theories and Practice of Human Resource Management (BH2212).  I am currently Associate Course Director for the Joint Honours Psychology and Business BSc Programme. From January 2008-June 2009 I held the role of Associate Dean: Undergraduate Programme in Aston Business School.
