2004 Graduate Student Scholarship Winner
J. Craig Wallace is embarking on his academic career with a mission: to introduce as many students as possible to industrial-organizational psychology, just as he was as an undergraduate at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Now an assistant professor of psychology at Tulane University (he earned his doctorate from Georgia Tech in July), he is including I-O in the introductory psychology courses he is teaching and has utilized the Teacher's Guide learning modules created by SIOP's Education and Training Committee found at www.siop.org.
It was while working on a master's degree at the University of West Florida that he really became committed to I-O. "Going to UWF was a good move for me because I had the opportunity to begin doing research and consulting, which led to my first refereed publication," he said. He published additional articles while at Georgia Tech.
Wallace enjoys teaching and the contact with students but continues his research with several companies. "My research is primarily applied and I am currently doing almost all my work in the field, which complements my lab work," he said.
His research interests are work motivation and job performance as well as legal issues in the selection process.
