STUDENTS

If you are thinking about working with me, I am assuming you have interests in psychology as it is applied to the workplace. I am flexible about your topic (although look over my research interests), but I generally expect you to collect data and preferably in a work- setting. If you have a part-time job, that would be an example of a suitable work-setting. I also expect you to have an interest in writing up your study for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Our shared responsibilities I expect students to meet with me every other week and keep me abreast of their progress through e-mail once a week. Although I try to support student research as much as possible, I believe it developmentally important for students to demonstrate initiative and seek out answers from other authorities and resources beyond just myself. If I were to characterize my supervisory style, it would be demanding but accessible. I will schedule timely meetings when requested by students and I expect regular updates on their progress, but I will not chase after them. I value initiative and hard work over raw intelligence any day.
Student qualities I value Organized Attention to detail Intellectual curiosity Tolerance of ambiguity Takes initiative Is ashamed of typos Positive attitude towards the Oxford comma
