Dr. Michelle Ward is the host of Investigation Discovery's series "The Mind of a Murderer."

Channeling her personal experience as a victim of a stalker for eight long years, Dr. Michelle Ward has made it her mission to probe psychopathic behavior. She also hosts the ID series, "Stalked: Someone's Watching," which profiles emotional stories of stalking victims and delves into the twisted psychology of the people who relentlessly pursue them.

Dr. Ward holds a B.A. from the University of Colorado and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Southern California (USC) with a dual emphasis in clinical neuroscience and behavioral genetics. Her interest and focus was the study of predatory criminals, and her current career actively puts her face-to-face with these unusual individuals.

Early in her career, Dr. Ward worked on studies that used Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) on murderers and non-murderers to identify structural differences in the brains of these groups of people. To further understand the complicated and dangerous predatory individual, she assisted her colleagues at USC in launching The Southern California Twin Project, a research project set out to identify biological characteristics and environmental underpinnings of psychopathic behavior in people before adulthood. Dr. Ward and her colleagues were some of the first to investigate this phenomenon in children in order to understand if these biological abnormalities are in future predatory individuals.

Dr. Ward has published numerous articles related to psychology and complex human behavior and has used her extensive background in psychology, genetics, and biology to become one of the first scientists to identify potential future predatory behaviors in a population of children. Today, she is widely sought after to assist in the criminal trials of some of the nation's most notorious offenders.
