I graduated from the University of Illinois in 1983 with a Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. After teaching for two years at the University of Minnesota's Industrial Relations Center, I joined the Management faculty at the University of Colorado. In addition to my faculty position in Management, I am also the Director of the Office of Research Integrity in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and founding Fellow of the Center for the Integrative Study of Work.

I am a member of the the American Psychological Society, the Academy of Management, Society of I/O Psychology, and the Society for Human Resource Management. I have also been certified as a Professional in Human Resource Management (PHR).

Business Outreach

I believe it is critical to develop effective linkages between the state of the art in management research and the state of practice in business. During 2000-2001 I had a special appointment as Professor in Residence at IBM Printing Systems Division in Boulder, CO to develop partnerships between CU and IBM.  I am actively involved in field research, consulting and public speaking. I have published books on hiring and on employee retention targeted to line managers as well as higher education administrators, and  wrote and edited a monthly column in the Boulder County Business Report entitled "On Management" that explored the human side of running a business.
