Paul Davis

Assistant Professor
Human Resource Studies


Paul Davis is an Assistant Professor of Human Resource Studies at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations. He earned his PhD in 2015 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he majored in Management and Human Resources. His primary research interest concerns employee separations from organizations, focusing on the consequences of these exits for individual attitudes and behaviors—both among the departing employees and among those who remain with the organization—and on the consequences of employee separations for organizational performance outcomes. His current work within this stream considers how layoffs affect their victims’ work behaviors in post-layoff employment.
