Welcome to my personal website.
Michael Kalin is a Senior Advisor with the New York office of the Behavioral Insights Team and a PhD candidate in Political Science at Yale University. Broadly speaking, my research agenda focuses on applying behavioral science to public policy, with a special interest in finding out what works to reduce prejudice between social groups.
For 2016-2017, I was a Fellow at the Sié Chéou-Kang Center for International Security and Diplomacy, at the University of Denver.
Before attending graduate school, I worked for several years as a political analyst supporting the Government of Canada’s National Security Advisor, Prime Minister and Cabinet as well as a political officer in Afghanistan with the Canadian embassy in Kabul. I have also worked with the International Organization for Migration (IOM). I received an MPhil in Oriental Studies from Oxford University, and completed my BA at McGill University.
