Yunsoo Park

Education Researcher, SRI Education

Yunsoo Park, Ph.D., has broad scientific expertise in neurobiological and psychological risk factors in the etiology of psychopathology. Specifically, her research interests focus genetic markers, impact of early trauma and stress, and various psychosocial influences (e.g., parenting style) that are associated with the development of externalizing behaviors (e.g., aggression). Park currently supports two U.S. Department of Education (ED) Institute of Education Sciences (IES)-funded projects, including an efficacy trial of Foundations, a positive and proactive approach to schoolwide discipline, in middle school students and an effectiveness trial of Tools for Getting Along (TFGA), a social problem-solving intervention for upper elementary school students.

Before joining SRI, Park was a Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD)/American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Executive Branch Fellow at the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). At NIJ, she was involved in managing and coordinating various research, evaluation, and dissemination activities focusing on a range of topics related to crime and victimization (e.g., teen dating violence, children exposed to violence, elder abuse). For example, she co-led the federal interagency working group on teen dating violence and provided guidance to grantees and federal partners on a national evaluation of a project focusing on linking systems of care for child and youth victims.

Park earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Emory University and completed her clinical internship at SUNY Upstate Medical University. She also holds a B.A. in psychology with a minor in philosophy from New York University.
