Hiu Ming Chan

Postdoctoral Fellow


As a postdoctoral fellow in the Kobor lab, I am currently expanding my research to understand the effect of early social experience on children’s socioemotional development through the changes in DNA methylation and epigenetic aging with a specific focus on racial and cultural diversity. My research goal is to further our understanding of the universality and specificity of the impact of social environment on children’s health, development, and epigenetics across race/ethnicity/culture.
