Welcome. My name is Taha Hameduddin, and I am a PhD. candidate in Public Affairs and a scholar-in-training at Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA). I study public organizations and employees, and teach organizational behavior and management at Indiana University.
Scroll down for more information about my research interests and professional background.
My research interests lie at the intersection of issues relating to organizational behavior and theory, human resource management, and administrative reform. These interests are guided by a central research question: How does the external environment of public organizations influence employee attitudes and behavior, and what role do these attitudes and behavior play in influencing public organizational performance? Specifically, my dissertation examines the emergence of employee engagement as a central human resource management reform in the U.S. federal government, how it influences job attitudes and behaviors (such as organizational identification, organizational images, and workplace aggression), and how those in turn influence federal agency performance. I teach an undergraduate course on Organizational Behavior at Indiana University's School of Public Environmental Affairs. Prior to attending SPEA, I received a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree from The University of Georgia in May 2014, with concentrations in Public Management and Nonprofit Administration. In 2012, I earned two Bachelor of Science degrees in Economics and Statistics, with a Classical Humanities minor, from the University of Missouri. When I'm not writing, crunching data, or teaching, I can be found swimming, cooking, listening to community radio, or hosting a radio show.
