Michelle first became passionate about scientific research during her first year of undergraduate studies in psychology at Dalhousie University. To nurture this interest, Michelle pursued research opportunities in childhood development,school-based health promotion programming, and women’s pain. During this time,she discovered her interest in clinical health psychology, and she became dedicated to developing her skills as both a researcher and clinician. Upon completion of her undergraduate degree (BA, First Class Honours in Psychology),she began graduate studies in Clinical Psychology (MSc/PhD) under the supervision of Dr. Tavis Campbell at the University of Calgary. Her master’s thesis was a feasibility trial investigating intranasal oxytocin as a treatment for women’s chronic pelvic pain. For her PhD, Michelle is investigating cognitive function following an online mindfulness intervention for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
Michelle wishes to pursue a career in which she independently conducts clinical health psychology research. She is most interested in cancer and health behaviour change.
