Vivian Huang is a PhD student in the Psychological Science graduate program at Ryerson University. Her research interest is centred around various factors that promote healthy aging, incorporating a cross-cultural perspective.
Vivian’s Master’s thesis examined the mediating effect of allostatic load in the relationship between emotion regulation and depressive symptoms in community- dwelling older adults.
Funded by the RBC Immigration, Diversity, and Inclusion Project student grant ($20,000 in total), Vivian’s dissertation will investigate the association between filial piety and wellbeing, and the moderating effect of acculturation in older Chinese Canadians.
