Professor Alexandre J. S. Morin received his PhD in psychology at the University of Montreal, Canada. He has authored or co-authored over 140 journal articles (many of which are in top-tier journals) and book chapters with reputable publishers. His research has attracted multiple prestigious external grants in Canada (e.g., Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Fond Québécois de Recherche sur la Société et la Culture) and Australia (Australian Research Council). Illustrative of the recognition received for his research contributions, he was recently identified as the 12th most productive researcher internationally in the field of educational psychology (Greenbaum et al., 2016, Educational Psychology Review, 28, 2, 215-223) . He he has acted as reviewer for international and local conferences, doctoral and post-doctoral scholarships, grant applications for the Fond Québécois de Recherche sur la Société et la Culture, additional Canadian, Italian and Belgian grants applications, and for over 100 manuscripts submitted in a total of 30 peer-reviewed journals. He has been repeatedly invited for short and long stays to present his research to research groups located in Canada, Australia, UK, Italy, Germany, and France.
Alex defines himself as a lifespan developmental psychologist, with broad research interests anchored in the exploration of the social determinants of psychological well-being and psychopathologies at various life stages and various settings, such as schools and organisations, with a more specific focus on self-concept development in adolescence and workplace commitment among working adults. He is also currently involved in a large scale longitudinal study of youth with Intellectual Disabilities conducted simultaneously in Canada and Australia, and has recently edited two research books on this topic. He is also currently involved in the development of a more comprehensive research program centered on his self-equilibrium and self-complexity hypotheses.
Most of his research activities are anchored in a substantive-methodological synergy framework, and thus represent joint ventures in which new methodological developments are applied to substantively important issues. Within this research framework, Alex seeks ways to promote secondary data analyses of the multiple rich databases available in the world, in order to maximize the return on investment of these impressive databases.
