Personal profile

Biography

I obtained my PhD in Organisational Behaviour from The University of Melbourne in 2010, and have been a full-time academic staff member in the Department of Management, Monash University, since 2012. I mostly research how employees respond to broken promises (from their employer), abusive supervisors, and why people stay in their jobs and careers.

Research interests

I undertake research across three streams with a common focus on employment relationships. The first stream examines processes and outcomes related to psychological contract breach, which happens when employees believe their employer has broken its promises to them. The second stream focuses on the effects of abusive supervision on the attitudes and behaviours of subordinates. The third stream focuses on job embeddedness (the forces that keep people from leaving organisations), and how it affects employees' work and career outcomes.
