Young In Chung, M.A.

Biography:

Young In is a third year student in the adult clinical Psychology doctoral program at Penn State. She is broadly interested in understanding why people repeat self-defeating behaviors and how we can help them towards better physical and psychological health. She graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and Art History from Swarthmore College. Before she came back to the U.S. she received her master’s degree in the Clinical and Counseling Psychology program at Seoul National University, where she used self-reports and experimental tasks to understand psychological and cognitive rigidity (e.g., set-shifting, rigid self-regulation) relevant to disordered eating behaviors. Outside of doing research, she is also a dedicated plant lover, an amateur swing dancer, and a cinephile.
