Personal profile

Personal Statement

I teach and research in several areas of work psychology, organisational behaviour and HRM, and have been involved in a variety of research projects funded by UK and international institutions; e.g. the Economic and Social Research Council, The Leverhulme Trust, the European Commission, the Association of Police Constables of England and Wales, and the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences. I was one of the Editors-in-Chief of the Human Resource Management Journal from 2016-2020 and am currently a member of several journal editorial boards and professional associations in the fields of psychology, and business and management. I'm also a Chartered Psychologist. 

Previous roles include: Business School Associate Dean for Postgraduate Research (2010-2013); Deputy Head of Department of HRM (2009-2014); member of the Strathclyde team co-ordinating the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) The changing nature of employment in Europe in the context of challenges, threats and opportunities for employees and employers (2012-2016); and member of the Supervisory Board of the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science & ESRC Doctoral Training Centre (Scotland) (2014-2016). 

Teaching Interests

My areas of teaching expertise cover work psychology, organisational behaviour and HRM generally, but with specific specialism in recruitment, assessment and selection, employee wellbeing and stress, research methodology and statistics.

Research Interests

My research activity has focused on:



HRM, work design and employee wellbeing, including the psychological effects of shiftwork, different types of work (e.g. call centre or software work) and the impact of HRM practices on employee outcomes (e.g., skill, attitudes). For recent work see: 

  • A multilevel examination of skills-oriented HRM and perceived skill utilization during recession: Implications for the wellbeing of all workers. Human Resource Management 
  • Unpredictable working time, wellbeing and health in the police service. International Journal of HRM 

The organisational context of recruitment and selection decision processes, particularly the impact on social mobility. This research has spanned a variety of industry sectors, including hotels, construction, professions, the voluntary sector, and the military. I’m also interested in the use of social media by employers to carry out recruitment, screening and performance monitoring of employees.

Youth (and graduate) employment/underemployment and career transitions. See for example:
