Description of Research

My primary research interest is in workplace judgment and decision making. I am especially interested in understanding why practitioners are sometimes hesitant to accept and use I-O psychology research recommendations. One potential explanation for this research-practice discrepancy is that research findings are not clearly communicated to practitioners. Consequently, in an effort to increase the use of evidence-based decision making at work, I am currently researching how to best disseminate I-O psychology research findings to practitioners. I am also currently studying the notions of job-hopping and careless survey responding in conjunction with my advisor and his research lab.
