Research Interests

RESEARCH STATEMENT

 

My broad area of research is Organizational Behavior. Congruent with my disciplinary background in Social/Organizational Psychology, a significant part of my research looks into the application of psychology into management and organizations. Over the past decade, I have mainly pursued the following three streams of research:

A.    Creativity and problem solving by individuals and teams, with a focus on organizational and work contexts. Within this stream, I have examined the role of individual factors (e.g., motivation types, affect and identity) as well as contextual factors (e.g., competitive vs. non-competitive situations).

B.    Learning processes in organizations and management education and development. This stream includes research on individual (e.g., values and beliefs) and contextual (e.g., organizational social networks) factors that affect individuals¿ learning in educational and organizational settings and their adaptation to socio-technical changes in organizations.

C.    Cross-cultural management. Studies in this stream include examination of factors affecting cultural intelligence and identity, the effects of cultural diversity on individual and team performance as well as comparative cross-cultural management studies.


A brief summary of my research outputs and approach:

·       I focus on publishing in leading international journals and with high-repute book publishers. I have published 12 papers in international refereed journals and five book chapters/entries.

·       The journals I publish in are high impact. 11 out of my 12 journal publications appeared in journals listed in Thomson Reuters Social Sciences Citation Index (JCR), a selective database, which contains selected, high-quality, world-leading journals.

·       Half of these journals are currently ranked at either first or second quartiles in their subject categories.

·       In addition, I published five book contributions comprising three full research book chapters, one research summary and one teaching exercise. All books were published in highly respected academic publishers, including Emerald and Sage.

·       In the past decade, I took part (as author and/or presenter) in 30 peer-reviewed paper and symposia sessions. Most of my papers are presented in leading international conferences such as the Academy of Management Annual meeting.

·       Awards: Five of my paper presentations received merit awards or were shortlisted for them (see further details in attached publication list).

·       Research Funds: Since arriving at UCD in 2003, I have received nine UCD research grants in various Seed Funding competitions (either School or University based). I was sole author on a successful IRCHSS Research Development Initiative (RDI) and was faculty sponsor on a successful IRCHSS Postgraduate Research Fellowship of an MPhil student I supervised.

 

Member of leading international journal Editorial Boards:

·       Journal of Organizational Behavior

·       Academy of Management Learning & Education Journal

·       I am the Editor in Chief for the AMLE Journal¿s 2013 Special Issue, titled ¿Cross-cultural Management Learning & Education: Exploring Multiple Aims, Approaches and Impacts.¿ (along with guest editors Guenter Stahl and Charmine Hartel). With 37 proposals from leading scholars worldwide, the competition to edit this Special Issue was fierce. Winning this competition was both prestigious and highly publicized. The AMLE publishes only one Special Issue each year. This Special Issue, which was published in September 2013, already had a major impact in the cross-cultural management and management learning and education areas.

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

I provide my students a learning experience that is informative, deep, engaging, personal and transformative. I want my students to be pushed beyond their intellectual and attitudinal comfort zones and, through critical thinking and personal reflection, to develop an informed open-minded approach to the subject area.
 

Enhancement of Teaching

Since my doctoral studies period, I have sought to create a synergistic connection between my research and teaching areas. I have conducted research on aspects of teaching and learning, presented and published the findings in refereed conferences and journals. I am especially proud of my ability to translate research into teaching: I do this not only through my lectures' content but also through designing innovative in-class exercises that enable students replicate classical and contemporary studies in the field. A notable example of this innovative approach is the Fundamental Attribution Error exercise, which was published in 2009 in a leading management textbook. I designed this exercise as an in-class experimental demonstration of how situational factors affect our attributions. I divided the students into two groups and gave them two scenarios, which slightly differed, asking them to make a certain decision. I then demonstrated how different situations affect their attributions. For several years now, I have been using a systematic approach to elicit reflection in students. One of the ways is through an individual reflection journal that they complete throughout the module. Judging by students' written and verbal feedback, they find this task both challenging and insightful. I systematically review student feedback, quantitative and qualitative alike, and revise my courses accordingly. For example, I changed the type of assignments I use in my Cross-cultural Management and Organisational Behaviour classes as result of feedback. I review syllabi of notable colleagues in my field as means of inspiring and updating my own syllabus. I also review my grade distribution annually to observe if certain elements in my assessment are out of line, being too tough or too lenient.

Review and Enhancement of Curriculum

My curricular design is guided by aiming to strike a balance between more traditional academic elements and students' hand-on experiential learning. I achieve this through infusing exercises and case studies throughout my modules. Assessment, in my view, should always be a learning experience by itself and aid students in digesting the studied material. In all modules I use a variety of assessments (typically 3-4 elements). These include both individual and group level assignments and, acknowledging the research literature on different learning styles, I utilise both verbal and written assignments. When designing assessment, I am informed by the research that indicates that it is beneficial to assess in different time-points. Thus, assessment includes weekly group presentations with feedback following each presentation, written individual assignments toward the end of the module and a major project completed after the module ends. I regularly teach in the School's most prestigious and highest ranked graduate programmes. A special challenge has been designing meaningful assignments for the EMBA students who are senior professionals with extensive work experience. My main assignment for the Organisational Behaviour module exemplifies the principles outlined above: it requires them to apply what they learned in class by conducting a research in an organisation and submitting a report on the basis of literature and their empirical findings. This is a highly demanding and engaging project, necessitating close guidance and support. Combined with encouragement to excel, this approach results in very high standard projects. In Cross-cultural management, one of the most successful assignments, in terms of learning outcomes and student feedback, is the Expatriate Interview where I ask them to interview an expatriate and write a report that integrates the interview with their personal reflections as well as literature based critical review.

Developing as a Teacher

I regularly attend T&L workshops offered by the School to keep updated about policies and best practices. Outside UCD, the Annual Academy of Management meeting provides an intensive learning opportunity through state of the art teaching & learning workshops. For example, a workshop I attended on using experiential exercises proved very useful for designing my MBA Team Development module, where I successfully used some of these exercises. I regularly follow several high-quality academic lists, which serve as exchange forums both for specific aspects as well as more philosophical ones. I regularly contribute to these forums, helping colleagues by sharing my experiences of 'what works', which I've done as recently as last week. I systematically engage in exchanges with my colleagues on various teaching ideas and dilemmas. I am frequently approached by colleagues, both in my Subject Areas as well as others, who consult with me about specific issues they are facing. For example, my CCM syllabus has informed several other lecturers' modules and, recently, my EMBA Applied Project assignment was used as basis for an assessment component in the MSc in Strategic Management Accounting. Another example is Prof Rong Du, a visiting scholar at UCD, whom I helped design a CCM module.
