I am the Curtis L. Carlson Professor of Industrial Relations at the University of Minnesota. My research examines how workers adjust to new jobs, human resources practices, the relationship between individual differences and career development, and how attitudes and emotions shape behavior in organizations. In recent years I’ve been especially interested in the ways interpersonal relationships with co-workers and supervisors can affect how new hires see their work environments over time. I have published over 50 peer reviewed articles and book chapters, which have appeared in publications such as the Academy of Management JournalJournal of Applied PsychologyPersonnel Psychology, and Journal of Management, among others. I served as an associate editor for Personnel Psychology and was chair of the Research Methods Division for the Academy of Management. In my capacity as an educator, I’ve taught courses related to organizational behavior and human resources in our specialized masters, MBA, and doctoral programs. I’ve also contributed to talent management in organizations as co-author of the textbook Staffing Organizations, and as the faculty director for the Masters in Human Resources and Industrial Relations program. Besides my academic work, I have provided human resources consulting with several organizations, including the Minneapolis Public Schools, Minnesota Department of Economic Security, Florida Nurses Association, University of Minnesota, Allegiance Healthcare, 3M, Merck, American Express, Cargill, and General Mills.
