A Bit About Me
I am an Associate Professor with the Faculty of Business, University of New Brunswick Saint John (UNBSJ). I received my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in management from Memorial University of Newfoundland (St. John’s, NL), my Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Memorial University of Newfoundland (St. John’s, NL), and my Bachelor of Science (BSc.) in Accountancy from Imo State University (Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria). I have extensive industry experience in human resource management, having worked for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, St. John’s, NL as a regional human resources advisor for over ten years, prior to joining UNBSJ. I am a Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR).
My research interests are primarily in the areas of workplace interpersonal mistreatment and employee wellbeing. Currently, I am building a research program in which I investigate employees’ remedial voice decisions and the individual and organizational outcomes that occur when employees remedial voice in response to interpersonal mistreatment. Furthermore, I am interested in understanding the factors that influence these decisions (e.g., context and race). While I am fascinated by employees’ remedial voice behaviors, I am also quite interested in understanding and shedding light on how findings from this research area can inform change in organizations. That is, what are the practical implications of my research.
My research has been funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation (NBIF), and various UNB research funds, and has been published in quality peer-reviewed management journals including the Journal of Management and Organization, the Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences, Canadian Journal of Behavioral Science, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, and SAGE Open.
