Postdoctoral Fellow

Steph (Jeong Ha) Choi

Originally from South Korea, Steph grew up exposed to both US and Korean culture. Prior to joining the Developmental Neuropsychology Across the Lifespan Lab, she received her PhD in Social Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Her research focuses on relatively overlooked sociocultural variability in the intersection of stress, health, and well-being based psychosocial factors related to health and well-being.
