Jeoung Min Lee, M.S.W.
Jeoung Min Lee is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Social Work, a pre-doctoral fellow at the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute (MPSI) for Child & Family Development, and an awardee of Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) at Wayne State University. She is interested in youth violence and psychosocial/behavioral health of racially and ethnically diverse adolescents in urban communities. Her three-paper dissertation investigates multiple level risk/protective factors associated with bullying among urban African American youth in Chicago. She also explores how internalizing problems (e.g., depression and loneliness) of bully victims might increase their risk of suicidal thoughts. In addition, she explores the effects of exposure to community violence on youths' aggressive behavior. She received the 2018 Outstanding Dissertation Proposal Award from the Korean American Social Work Educators Association for her dissertation.
