Mahima Saxena joined the faculty as a Visiting Assistant Professor in I/O Psychology. She comes to us from Purdue University, where she received her graduate training and served as a lecturer for the Department of Psychological Sciences.
Research & Major Accomplishments
Mahima’s research focuses on momentary and long-term aspects of self-regulation as manifested in occupational health and organizational deviance. She is also interested in cross-cultural psychology, particularly within the context of organizational deviance. Specifically, her research has examined job-burnout, counterproductive work behaviors such as incivility, and restoration via psychological detachment. Mahima has received grant support for her research exploring job-burnout among graduate students. Her past work has also explored emotional cross-over of organizational commitment within military families on a DOD funded project. To this end, she is an expert in the experience sampling methodology, and has utilized experimental cognitive tasks, dyadic surveys, and field interviews in her research endeavors.
