Biography

Gordon joined the University of Auckland Business School in January 2016 as Professor of Organisational Behaviour. He served as the Associate Vice President and Professor in the Department of Management at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) before he joined the Business School. He obtained his BBA from CUHK and his PhD in management from Virginia Tech. He is well recognised internationally as an expert in structural equation modelling, especially in measurement equivalence/invariance, analysis of dyadic data, as well as estimation of moderating and mediating effects in complex latent variable models. He has published more than 20 articles in research methodologies, which have been cited over 9,300 times. He has twice received the Sage Best Paper Award from the Research Methods Division of the Academy of Management (2000 and 2009) and in 2008 the Best Published Paper Award in Organisational Research Methods.

He served as the Division Chair of the Research Methods Division of the Academy of Management in 2006/07 and as the Chair of the Research Methods Special Track at the Academy of International Business 2011 Conference at Nagoya, Japan. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Organisational Research Methods, a member of the International Scientific Advisory Panel for the Behavioral Sciences Institute (BSI) at Singapore Management University and of the International Advisory Board, Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) in USA.

Gordon is an enthusiastic teacher and has taught undergraduate level international business, management, and organisational behaviour, and graduate level research methods and structural equation modelling courses. He has received many teaching awards, including the Vice-Chancellor Exemplary Teacher Award (2000) and the Faculty of Business Administration Outstanding Teacher Award (2002/03) at CUHK.
