Department of Education Leadership Management and Policy
Dr. Manuel (Manny) Gonzalez is an assistant professor in the Department of Education Leadership, Management and Policy and in the Police Graduate Studies Program at Seton Hall University. Dr. Gonzalez earned his Ph.D. in industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
Dr. Gonzalez’s research revolves around two broad aspects about work:
(1) How emotions (felt or expressed) influence various social and organizational processes
(2) Fairness and ethics, with a recent focus on issues that emerge when implementing technologies such as those utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)
In addition to these two areas, Dr. Gonzalez’s research occasionally branches out to additional topics relevant to work, such as personality, distractions, engagement and burnout. His research has been published in various outlets, such as Computers in Human Behavior, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied, Personnel Assessments & Decisions, and Emotion Review, and has received coverage in media outlets such as Forbes, Wall Street Journal, and Scientific American.
Through his research and training as an I-O psychologist, Dr. Gonzalez has a strong foundation in an array of organizational topics (e.g., leadership, training and development, personnel selection, occupational health and well-being), and in both quantitative and qualitative research methods.
Outside of his work, Dr. Gonzalez is also a loving husband and father, pun enthusiast, metal head, and caretaker of two endearingly unintelligent cats.
