Martine C. Maculaitis
Martine earned her BA in Criminal Justice and Psychology in 2003 from the University of Georgia. At UGA, her senior thesis examined how the expectancies for aggressive behavior held by police officers influenced their perceptions of the eventual outcome of traffic stops that involved intoxicated suspects. Martine later earned her MA in Behavioral Sciences with a concentration in Human Behavior and Organizational Psychology from Kean University in 2006, where she had the honor of being chosen by the KU faculty and administration to deliver the valedictory commencement address at NJPAC in Newark, New Jersey. Martine’s master’s thesis examined the effectiveness of an induced hypocrisy manipulation in reducing prejudice towards professional women.
Martine began her studies in the I/O Psychology doctoral program in 2006. Currently, she is conducting research that examines workplace outcomes for employees with disabilities. In her role as an adjunct professor, Martine also teaches I/O Psychology and Motivation at Montclair State University. She additionally works with Dr. Karen Lyness, her research advisor, in the Diversity Lab at Baruch College.
