I am an Associate Professor of Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax (Canada). I received my BSc and MSc in Management from the University of Lausanne and my PhD in I/O Psychology from the University of Neuchatel (both in Switzerland). Before moving to Saint Mary’s, I worked as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland and as an Assistant Professor of Human Resource Management at the University of Manitoba, Canada.
My research is focused on personnel selection. I am particularly interested in applicants’ behaviors during the selection process, including their use of impression management tactics, faking, or positioning strategies. I also study interviewers’ and organizations’ attempts to detect and deal with faking, employment discrimination, and how to use new technologies (e.g., social media, video interviews) as selection tools.
My work has been published in top I/O psychology and management journals, such as the Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, Organizational Psychology Review, or the Journal of Business Ethics. In addition to my research activities, I recently wrote the book “The Psychology of Job Interviews” edited by Routledge. I am also currently an Associate Editor for the International Journal of Selection and Assessment (IJSA), as well as the Chair for the Canadian Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (CSIOP).
