Dr. Danilo LeSante is an Industrial/Organizational Psychology PhD. He has been an adjunct lecturer at FIU for over 10 years.

Dr. LeSante is particularly interested in understanding the extent to which ideological misfit (between employees and organizations) influences employee workplace outcomes (especially job attitudes and counterproductive work behaviors), and whether employee workplace judgments and behaviors are driven by their ideological leanings.

Additionally, Dr. Lesante has general interests in research methodology and statistical analysis. He has applied a variety of statistical techniques (including moderated mediation, structural equation modeling, growth curve modeling, and multilevel modeling) to examine topics related to personality, job performance, gender, and psychological contract breach.
