Personal profile

Name in Chinese



Meanne is an inter-disciplinary scientist with expertise that spans the areas of psychology, neuroscience, immunology, and social health policy. The vision is to unmask trends across disciplines to understand stress biology and stratify social healthcare management for disadvantaged populations.

The research program aims to understand health disparities by characterizing bio-behavioral pathways between individuals and their communities. A multi-level, mixed methods approach examines how social factors at the neighborhood, family, and individual levels interact to predict health development across the lifespan, with a particular focus on childhood social disadvantage, stress, and its effects on emotional and neurobiological pathways relevant to the pathophysiology of age-related diseases. To better understand stress in naturalistic settings, Meanne applies ecological momentary assessment techniques as well as mobile health methods.

In combination, models of risk and resilience are built to unmask patterns of health trajectories in various subgroups and families, coupled with technology harnessing, to optimize user-driven but evidence-based intervention approaches at the community level. 

Previous experience include launch of large-scale NIH R01 prospective studies with both healthy cohorts and clinical samples, digital health interventions, intensive longitudinal studies with eHealth/mobile data collection, design of community hubs to improve living conditions of disadvantaged populations, and adaptation of behavioral tasks for health studies. In 2016, Meanne was named a Young Investigator Colloquium Scholar by the American Psychosomatic Society for promising early career research.
