Short Biography:

Yeonjin Lee has a joint appointment as Assistant Professor at the Department of Social Work and Social Administration and the School of Public Health, The University of Hong Kong. Her principal line of research focuses on how human behaviors are shaped by a process of reciprocal causation between the individual and the environment, with an emphasis on social determinants of mental health and cognitive function in later life. Understanding mechanisms linking the structural factors to individual well-being contributes to developing public policies to promote social equity. In general, Dr. Lee’s research aims to address less known issues to clarify the pathways underlying health inequalities across populations. Methodologically, she utilizes statistical approaches to handle population survey, spatial and big data aligning analytic strategies with the nature and scope of the research questions. Dr. Lee participates in developing comparative research projects, which evaluate social policies relevant to family, social networks, technology, and the aging process.
