Michelle joins the CSC as a Research Associate after returning from Masaryk University in the Czech Republic, where she spent two and a half years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Children, Youth, and Family. She received her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology with a focus on Developmental Psychology from DePaul University, and her Masters in General Psychology from Auburn Montgomery. She has authored numerous publications and possesses extensive research knowledge and experience involving children’s, adolescents’, and young adults’ offline and online emotional risks, particularly bullying and cyberbullying.

In her role as Research Associate, Michelle plans to utilize her expertise as well as expand her technological knowledge while working with faculty on innovative ways of collecting data and delivering interventions. In that role, she will work with Dr. Karen Bierman on a project using touch-screen games to teach school readiness skills to preschool children, along with technology-assisted implementation supports for parents and teachers. She will also be working with Dr. Jenny Frank on a project that involves the use of artificial intelligence to train school personnel on how to effectively respond to classroom bullying by providing them with opportunities for virtual practice in talking with bullies, victims, and parents.
