About Me

Hello there! I’m Michelle Krieger – welcome to my personal website! Currently I’m a PhD candidate in Applied Social Psychology at the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario. My current area of study is the use of technology in violence against women. My ultimate goal and dream job is to be a professor!

Before I began my PhD, my background was more clinical in nature. I completed my Masters in forensic psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Illinois. My academic focus was on sexual offenders, and my internship was working with people who had committed sexual offenses. After that, I worked in community mental health as a case manager in Toronto, Ontario. Out of these experiences I gained an appreciation of the systemic, social and cultural factors that lead to and constrain individual behaviour. And so, onto social psychology I went!

In my spare time, I can most often be found reading (my goal this year is to read 75 books), playing with my dwarf hamsters (usually rescues), and counting the days until next Halloween.

 Two hamsters. One tree stump.
