Dr. Michele Morningstar

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Queen’s University. Previously, I completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Department of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University, in Columbus, OH. I obtained my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from McGill University in 2017.

My research focuses on the development of emotional processing and social cognition from childhood to adulthood. I am particularly interested in the ways in which we learn to express and perceive emotional states through nonverbal cues, such as our tone of voice. I use a variety of methods, including speech analysis and functional neuroimaging, to determine how these basic emotional skills contribute to our social functioning and psychological well-being across development.
