Ozias Moore joined the Department of Management at Lehigh University in 2016. He received his B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh, an M.S. in Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Human Resource Studies from Cornell University.

Ozias’ research spans areas in organizational behavior and human resource management. His major research interests focus on team and multi-team effectiveness. He is particularly interested in the multi-level effects of multiple team membership on team processes, emergent states, and team outcomes. His secondary area of research, which shifts from the team to individual processes and outcomes, focuses on the effects of individual differences that affect perceptions, judgments, and performance.

His refereed publications have appeared in premier journals including the Journal of Applied Psychology and Small Group Research. In addition, his book chapter (with B. S. Bell), “Preparing Talent for Work: Opportunities and Challenges in Learning, Training, and Development in Organizations" appears in The SAGE Handbook of Industrial, Work, and Organizational Psychology (2nd ed., Vol. 2). Ozias is an active member of and regularly presents at the Academy of Management (OB, HR, & RM Divisions), Southern Management Association, Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the Interdisciplinary Network for Group Research. He is also on the editorial review board of the Journal of Management Studies.

In 2016, Ozias was awarded the Cornell University Provost Fellowship and the Lee Hakel Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology for his research An Examination of the Multi-Level Effects of Multiple Team Memberships on Project Team Processes and Outcomes. He has received national and university-wide recognition for excellence in teaching and was named among the nation’s “Top 50 Undergraduate Business Professors” by Poets & Quants in 2018. Ozias was also a recipient of the 2018 Lehigh University College of Business and Economics Teaching Excellence Award.

Prior to pursuing his Ph.D., Ozias’ work experience was inclusive of key management and executive-level positions at Westinghouse Electric Corporation, IBM Corporation, American Express, and Pfizer, Inc. He is also a PMI (Project Management Institute) certified PMP® (Project Management Professional).
