About Me

Sandy Fisher (PhD) is a Senior Researcher and Assistant Professor of Human Resource Management (1 day per week). The rest of the week she is a Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences in Münster, Germany. She conducts research on issues of technology, the changing workplace, and human resource management such as eHRM, gig work, artificial intelligence in HRM, and technology-based training. She teaches courses on international human resource management, managing technology, intercultural management, and leadership.

Dr. Fisher has a PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Michigan State University. Before moving to Germany she was a consultant at Personnel Decisions Research Institutes and a professor at Clarkson University in New York.


My research focuses in three areas at the interface of human resource management and technology: the use of contingent/gig work, the implementation and strategic use of eHRM, and effective design of technology-based training.
