Lilian J. Shin, Ph.D. is an NIH K99/R00 funded postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Health Disparities Research at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. She completed her Ph.D. in Social Psychology at the University of California, Riverside studying how positive psychology interventions (e.g., acts of kindness) could be tailored to maximize the well-being of persons from collectivist cultures. In her work at MD Anderson Cancer Center with the Cancer Prevention Research Training Program (CPRTP), she continued this line of research in a cancer prevention and control context by exploring whether positive activities could be adapted and tailored for underrepresented groups, such as Asian American and Latinx cancer survivors.
Dr. Shin is seeking a tenure-track Assistant Professor position to begin Fall 2023. Her research activities at her new institution will be supported by her NIH K99/R00 award.
