Dr. Yim’s research aims to better understand biopsychological mechanisms linking stress and health, in particular women’s and minority health. Within this broader framework, she is particularly interested in how stress-related biological and psychosocial changes throughout pregnancy affect maternal mental health after delivery. A second line of research aims to understand how cultural differences can put individuals at risk or be protective in terms of their health.
