Mu-Yin Chang

Mu-Yin graduated with a First-Class Honors (Summa Cum Laude) from University College London with a BSc in Psychology with Education in 2022, where she completed an honors thesis investigating the relationship between childhood bullying victimization, adult psychological distress, and personality factors. Mu-Yin went on to complete an Ed.M. in Human Development and Education at Harvard University, during which she was part of several research labs and interned at an elementary school as a counselor and worked with students on socioemotional learning and behavioral change. Those experience led Mu-Yin to become interested in stress, trauma, and physiological processes, and inspired her to conduct an independent project on childhood adversity, interoceptive awareness, and suicidal and self-injurious thoughts and behaviors. At Home Base, Mu-Yin hopes to continue studying the psychological, social, and biological underpinnings of why and how people suffer. After her time at Home Base, Mu-Yin plans to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.
