Biographical Information

I joined the Psychology Department at the UWO five years ago. Previously, I was a Full Professor in Applied Psychology and Associate Dean Research (Faculty of Education) at the University of Calgary.  I am currently an Adjunct Professor at the University of Calgary as well as the Department of Educational Psychology, University of Saskatchewan, Visiting Professor in the School of Psychology at Beijing Normal University, and a Research Member in the Laboratory for Research and Intervention in Positive Psychology and Prevention, University of Florence, Italy. Editorships include: Personality and Individual Differences,  Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment and Canadian Journal of School Psychology; also Editor for the Human Exceptionality book series published by Springer.

I am a Fellow of the Canadian Psychological Association, Association for Psychological Science, and Society for Personality and Social Psychology.  I recently served on the Board of Directors and as President of the International Society for the Study of Individual Differences and the Board of the Canadian Psychological Association.   

My research interests and contributions are included in other sections of my profile.  The diversity of research achievements of our current lab of exceptional graduate students is outlined as well. Finally, I have a long standing interest in the martial arts and hold a black belt (sandan) in Shito-Ryu karate.

Research

My research focuses on the study of individual differences with an emphasis on personality and intelligence, including emotional intelligence. These studies and resulting publications are theoretical and practical as well as correlational and experimental. The opportunity for cross-cultural studies has significantly broadened the scope of this research. Also, my recent research interests in emotional intelligence, including emotions and social cognition is motivated by the current emphasis on prevention, resiliency, psychological health, and building capacity.

Publications of some of my more recent books, book chapters and journal articles are included in the publications link.
