Linhao is a second-year doctoral student in Human Development and Family Science. Her research focuses on studying how child adversity influences youth development and psychopathology among youth and how executive functioning, psychophysiological, and neurological mechanisms impact these associations. She is particularly interested in how sleep quality can impact the parent-child relationship as well as risk and resilience behaviors.
Interesting fact: Linhao’s feet have gotten smaller! She used to wear size 7, but now she wears 6.
