About Me

Jesse Michel received his BA in psychology and sociology from the University of Minnesota in 2002, and his MA and PhD in industrial/organizational psychology (minor in quantitative methods) from Wayne State University in 2006 and 2007, respectively. Previously, he was a post-doctoral research associate and visiting assistant professor in the School of Human Resources and Labor Relations at Michigan State University and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Florida International University. Michel joined the faculty at Auburn University in 2014.

His primary research interests revolve around the dynamics between work-family domains and the role of personality and individual differences in the workplace. His secondary interests include the psychological and contextual processes underlying organizational deviance and workplace aggression.
