Michelle Corman




I earned my BA in Psychology at the University of Kentucky in 2005, where I participated in several research labs investigating a broad range of issues including: human factors, ergonomics, prejudice, stereotypes, and aggression. Needless to say, a broad range of topics interest me. I decided to further my education in Psychology, which brings me to Baruch College, where I am currently beginning my third year in the I/O Psychology program. 

Currently my research interests include (but are not limited to): aggression in the workplace, organizational misbehavior, fairness in organizations, organizational justice, and justification mechanisms. Since arriving at Baruch, I have worked on several research projects with Dr. Yochi Cohen-Charash. Her research focuses on emotions, fairness, and justice in organizations (to name a few). I have also worked on research projects with Dr. Daniele Artistico. His research focuses on problem solving, self-efficacy, individual differences and contextual effects (also to name a few).
