I am a Winthrop Professor of Management and Organizations at the UWA Business School, University of Western Australia, and a Future Fellow of the Australian Research Council.



I carry out research, teaching, and consulting in the area of organizational behavior and work psychology. My research interests include proactivity at work, job and work design, and employee perspective taking. Other areas of interest include mental health, organizational change, team working, self-efficacy, leadership, and measurement of impact.

I am an Associate Editor for the Journal of Applied Psychology and was recently a Representative at Large for the OB Division of the Academy of Management.

Prior to my current position I was the Director of the Institute of Work Psychology, University of Sheffield, and before that, an Associate Dean of Research at the Australian Graduate School of Management.
