ABOUT ME

Greg A. Chung-Yan, PhD

Dr. Greg Chung-Yan received his BA in psychology from York University and his MA and PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from the University of Guelph. (He also has an electronics technician diploma for some reason). After a brief tenure as a sessional lecturer at the University of Guelph teaching statistics, psychological measurement, I-O psychology, and human resources management, he joined the faculty at the University of Windsor in 2006. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Applied Social Psychology Program. His research looks at the impact of workplace person-environment fit on health and well-being. Topics include: work stress and coping; adapting to different job demands and characteristics; worker proactivity and autonomy; work conflict; and bias and fairness in employee appraisals. He is also the Research Director of the Occupational Health and Well-Being Research Group (supported by an infrastructure grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Leaders Opportunity Fund). His research appears in such journals as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, and the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology. Outside of academia, he’s worked with the Public Service Commission of Canada, the Assessment Centre for Executive Appointment, Organization and Management Solutions, and Human Systems Incorporated. He’s is the former Chair of the Committee on Participant Recruitment, which oversees the Department of Psychology’s Participant Pool; and the former Director of the Applied Social Psychology Training Committee, which oversees graduate student practica and internships.  
He served as the Department Head of Psychology from 2013 to 2016 and was the Acting-Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (for 3 whole days). He’s now the Chair of the University of Windsor’s Program Development Committee (PDC). Even though some of his best friends are management consultants, he’s not quite as energized by the enterprise as he used to be. His latest epiphany is that he’d rather help students, junior colleagues, and people struggling with existential career issues. Unfortunately, the Globe and Mail has stopped calling him for advice, so he’s taken up blogging--sharing his unconventional wisdom with students and new academic leaders--and founding Career Path Labs, a vocational and career counselling consultancy.
