Michael Denunzio received his BA with honors from St. John’s University in 2010 majoring in psychology and minoring in business administration. He entered the Ph.D. program in Industrial/Organizational psychology the same year and iscurrently working in the research labs of Drs. Loren Naidoo and Charles Scherbaum.
His research interests are largely concentrated in the area of occupational health psychology. Specifically, he is interested in the psychological states of work engagement and burnout, the workplace and personal characteristics that affect these states, and how they may fit into achievement goal theory.
He is also currently working on projects in the area of intelligence and reducing adverse impact against disadvantaged groups on selection instruments.
