Jing Yu, Ph.D., is a developmental psychologist and postdoctoral fellow studying how biological (e.g., temperament, inflammation biomarkers) and sociocultural (e.g., parenting, family socioeconomic status, acculturation) factors influence human development and health over the life course. She works with Dr. Stephen Gilman to examine socioeconomic and racial/ethnic disparities in child development and long-term health (premature mortality risk). In addition, she focuses her work on resilience factors and positive well-being. Dr. Yu is also actively involved in launching the ENRICHED study on early life origins of health disparities. She earned her doctorate in applied developmental psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in 2016, and completed her first postdoctoral fellowship, with Dr. Marc Bornstein, in 2018.
