Michelle graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Liverpool in 2000 and went on to study her MSc Investigative Psychology, graduating in 2001. Michelle was awarded a MPhil in April 2004 for her thesis on Detective decision-making in homicide investigations.

She has also worked on projects for Greater Manchester Police and Lancashire Constabulary examining how homicides are investigated, resource allocation and the development of benchmarking measures for homicide investigations.
