A bit about me

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Human Resource Management & Organizational Behaviour Department in the Ted Rogers School of Management at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University). I am passionate about evidence-based best practices in recruitment and selection, and understanding the ways in which organizations can improve the ways in which they hire to promote a fair and equitable society. I'm always looking for new challenges and enjoy finding new problems to solve; if any of that sounds interesting to you then please reach out!


I earned both my Bachelor of Business Administration and Bachelor of Computer Science degrees in 2015 from Wilfrid Laurier University and University of Waterloo respectively. My broad interests in my undergraduate pursuits spilled over into my graduate studies, where I have explored a wide variety of different research areas. Upon finding a great fit with my graduate advisor, Dr. Chet Robie, I continued to pursue my Master of Science and PhD at Wilfrid Laurier University.

The HRM/OB-CS crossover

As it turns out, my background in both Computer Science (or, more importantly, software development) and Organizational Behaviour has lead me to an interesting position as a researcher. At the most basic level, I have been able to facilitate a number of otherwise monotonous tasks that go hand-in-hand with my research, as well as develop customized software for experimental data collections (check out my Research Tools). More recently I have begun exploring simulations and computational models to study some of the many interesting topics in the field of personnel selection. Further, my interests in the fast-paced, stereotypically masculine world of software development have helped to guide the direction my research has taken. The underlying question behind all of my research is: How can we most effectively leverage technology to pick the right person for the job, while avoiding natural, human biases? Obviously there is no single answer to this question, and it has led me to branch off into a variety of different research areas including personality, cognitive ability, diversity, and recruitment.
