Shun Ting Yung

As a PhD student in developmental psychology, I have always been interested in estimating both social and emotional health development of children and adolescents. I am currently working on a study which focuses on adolescents with type 1 diabetes in Latino families. I aim to examine how adolescent behaviors and their interpretations are associated with Diabetes outcomes (adherence, metabolic control). Besides, I am working on another study which tests whether one’s cultural values impacts aspects of one’s in-the-moment social interactions, mood states, and stress levels.
