Biography

I am Professor of Human Resource Management and Director of the People, Organizations and Entrepreneurship Research Centre at the Bradford School of Management from September 2018.

I obtained my PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Aston University in 1989, and have previously held chairs at the University of London (Goldsmiths College) and the University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands). Having published in several areas spanning HRM and Organizational Psychology over a number of years. I am Fellow of the British Psychological Society, a Chartered Occupational Psychologist, Fellow of both the American Psychological Association and Division 14 of the APA (the Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychology), Fellow of the IAAP, and an Academic Fellow of the CIPD.

Having published over 100 refereed papers, 20 books, and over 60 book chapters, my scholarly work has appeared in a number of the top-tier journals in the field including the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Personnel Psychology, Human Relations, Human Performance, and the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology. In addition, I have also co-edited a number of major handbooks including the Blackwell Handbook of Selection (2005) and the Handbook of Industrial, Work, and Organizational Psychology published by Sage (2001/2017). As a former Editor and Associate Editor, I continue to serve on the international editorial boards of several other scholarly journals including the Journal of Management, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Business and Psychology, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, International Journal of Selection and Assessment, and the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, amongst others.

ResearchGate

I have built up wide experience of departmental and university management roles, and over the years I have won funding from research councils and third-wave foundations in three countries, including a Leverhulme Trust funded centre into innovation research in the workplace, and, most recently, NASA (the MARS mission project). In total, I have won in excess of 3 million pounds of research support from a wide range of funding bodies in several countries.

Having previously been Visiting Professor to several universities in the UK, China and the USA, I am currently Visiting Professor at the University of Maastricht (The Netherlands) and the University of Valencia (Spain). Retaining a close interest in the practical application of scientific research in human resource management practices in organizations, I have also consulted to numerous organizations in the UK, Europe, and the USA on issues relating to personnel psychology and organizational performance, including British Aerospace, the British Army, Shell, Saville Consulting, and NASA in the USA (Jupiter and MARS Missions).
