Curriculum Vitae


My research focuses on the human resource management issues of recruiting and selecting employees. Specifically, with regard to recruiting, I have investigated applicant and employee reactions to the employment interview in a variety of contexts. Results from these studies will aid organizations in designing their employment selection techniques so as to recruit the best qualified and leave the non-selected with a favorable impression of the company. With regard to selecting, I actively examine a variety of means of improving the employment interview so organizations can better select the most qualified. For example, I have investigated various strategies of interviewer note-taking and its effects on interviewers' recall and subsequent selection decisions. More recently, my research focuses on interviewers' ratings of applicants with disabilities and aims to improve the interview process for this growing segment of the workforce, persons with disabilities.
