Michelle Shih

Contract Executive Editor

Every writer can use an editor, and at Character Lab that editor is Michelle. She works with the scientists who write Tips of the Week and Playbooks to make their research accessible to parents and teachers. 

Before joining Character Lab, Michelle was an editor and writer at The New York Times, Food & Wine, Vogue, O: The Oprah Magazine, and Martha Stewart Living. She holds a bachelor’s degree in history & literature from Harvard College.

In her free time, she enjoys reading, cooking, knitting, and running—in that order. 

Michelle’s pronouns are she/her/hers.
