Michael Klasz is a 4th year psychology student at Dalhousie University with a focus in animal behaviour. He's on track to complete his certificate in animal behaviour and loves to help people understand the behaviour of animals and how they interact with those around him. From a young age, Michael has had a strong bond with different animals and truly cares about their well-being. To know how to protect their well-being and teach others, he started reading about animals in childhood, anything from an article on the web to an encyclopedia on a variety of animals. This interest carried through to university where he took any and all animal behaviour related classes available to him. He currently works in the Dalhousie Canine Lab under Dr. Gadbois studying synchronisity in dogs and if it's a precursor to their level of empathy for humans.
Along with animals, Michael also has a great interest in cognitive psychology. He's fascinated by how the mind thinks, how it arrives to a conclusion, and why it makes the errors it does. With this comes knowing how human memory works, making him a great resource for study skills. Michael is a very enthusiastic person, always happy to help anyone who needs it. He's very friendly so don't be afraid to say if you see him around. Michael also has a great interest in sports and fitness. He's played at the high school national level twice and university national level once in ultimate frisbee. He's a hockey lover and a former goalie. Michael loves pushing himself physically and achieving new goals. He also loves helping others do the same, so if you have any questions about fitness don't be shy!
