Welcome! My name is Michelle Hasan and I'm currently a Visiting Research Assistant (soon to be Post-Doc) at USC's Information Sciences Institute. I work with Dr. Shrikanth Narayanan on the TILES: Tracking Individual Performance with Sensors project. This project, funded by IARPA, aims to understand the complex interplay between individual difference variables (e.g., personality), mental states (e.g., emotions), and well-being (e.g., fatigue) in performance of jobs with varying cognitive, affective, and social demands (e.g., customer service).

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Saint Louis University in 2011 and my Master of Science degree in Experimental Psychology from Saint Louis University in 2013. I'm currently a doctoral candidate in the Experimental Psychology program at Saint Louis University, with dual concentrations in Social Psychology and Quantitative Methods for Behavioral Science (expected graduation December 2017). My interests include theories of the self and close relationships.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my cat, Misty, photographing architecture, exploring urban areas, enjoying a good mystery book or film noir, and doing puzzles.
