Mark received his PhD in Human Resource Management and Organizational Behaviour from the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University. He also holds an MBA (specialization in finance) from Wilfrid Laurier University and an HBMus in Performance (violin/viola) from the University of Western Ontario. Mark’s research focuses on situational constraints in the workplace, which includes the kinds of management practices and behavioural norms that can influence individual and group level behaviours and outcomes, as well as methods of analysis of multilevel organizational situations. Mark’s research also explores the relationships between organizational strategy and HR practices, and seeks to develop valid and reliable methods to connect strategic outcomes to HR practices and the management of human capital. With management experience in the financial sector and in arts organizations, Mark’s research and teaching brings an understanding of many of the issues facing practitioners today. In addition to organizational research, Mark has a deep love of music, and prior to his PhD was a tenured professional classical musician in one of Canada's leading symphony orchestras.
