About Me

Dr. Jesse Michel received his BA in psychology and sociology from the University of Minnesota, and his MA and PhD in industrial-organizational psychology from Wayne State University. He joined the faculty at Auburn University in 2014, following similar positions at Florida International University's Department of Psychology and Michigan State University's School of Human Resources and Labor Relations. He is currently the Program Director of the ABM and PhD Industrial-Organizational Psychology programs in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Auburn University. 

Dr. Michel’s primary research interests revolve around the dynamics between the work and family domains. He also conducts research on numerous I-O and OHP topics, such as the role of personality and individual differences in the workplace, psychological and contextual processes underlying organizational deviance and workplace aggression, and more recently job-related burnout. Most of his research is survey based and he enjoys developing and validating measurement tools for use in research and practice.

Dr. Michel serves as an associate editor at Applied Psychology: An International Review, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, and Occupational Health Science. He is also on the editorial boards of Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Business and Psychology, Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, and Journal of Vocational Behavior.
