Dr. Sunhye Bai Awarded Early Career Professorship

Sunhye Bai, Ph.D.

Congratulations to Dr. Sunhye Bai, Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Studies, on being awarded the Karl R. Fink and Diane Wendle Fink Early Career Professorship for the Study of Families. This professorship is a three-year, rotating, endowed professorship that is awarded to early-career faculty conducting innovative family science research in Penn State’s College of Health and Human Development.

Dr. Bai’s research broadly focuses on adolescent development in the context of daily family and school life. Her work integrates human development, family studies, and clinical and health research. It relies heavily on naturalistic measures of youth and family functioning, including daily diaries, passive audio/videorecordings, and actigraphy. She hopes to better identify innovative strategies to enhance parent-child interactions and increase family strengths to promote health in adolescents.

Congratulations, Dr. Bai!
