Dr. Eunjin Tracy received her Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016. She completed her first postdoctoral training in Developmental and Health Psychology at the University of Utah. She completed her second postdoctoral training in sleep and circadian rhythms in the department of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh as a NIH T32 postdoctoral scholar.
Dr. Tracy’s overarching research and theoretical interests take a life-course perspective on the ways in which health-related stress (e.g., type 1 diabetes) and sleep and circadian rhythms in the context of couple and family relationships shape trajectories of healthy aging and disease. Her long-term career goal is to apply a family systems perspective to public health research by focusing the role of sleep and circadian rhythms, thereby improving health as well as the functioning of couple and family relationships.
