Biography

Dr. Cristina Gibson's expertise is at the nexus of organizational science, international management, and cross-cultural psychology. Her research and teaching addresses the manner in which culture, organizational structures, and technology serve as key influences on shared use of information and knowledge, and she has demonstrated that such processes are critical for subsequent behavioral and organizational outcomes, including innovation and collaboration.

Dr. Gibson strives for real world impact. For three consecutive years she has been awarded the Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Distinction, indicating that she is among the top 1% in the world in terms of impact in the fields of Economic and Business based on citation counts. This award is an honor reserved for only 95 academics in this discipline across the world. Additionally, she was recently selected as the recipient of the 2018 Humanitarian Award from the American Psychological Association (Division 14, Society for Industrial Organizational Psychology) based upon her application of industrial organizational psychology towards an initiative that has reached hundreds of lives in both Australia’s business and indigenous communities.

Dr. Gibson's other work has informed organizational policy, structure, training and development agendas improving operational efficiency, innovation, resource allocation, and well-being, in non-profits, entrepreneurial firms, and large multinationals such as IBM, HP, General Motors, Johnson & Johnson, Alcoa, Qantas and Westpac, across over 20 countries.
