Community Violence

Dr. Hsieh is currently an assistant research scientist in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education.  She received her MPH and Ph.D. in Health Behavior and Health Education at the U-M School of Public Health.  Her research focuses on applying resilience theory and multi-domain analysis to understand disparities in firearm injury and chronic conditions resulting from racism and violence exposure.  Her research also seeks to identify behavioral, interpersonal, and community factors that promote resilience among communities shouldering the unjust burden of violence and racism and therefore inform preventive efforts. 

Dr. Hsieh’s publications bridge the link between violence exposure and the development of chronic disease through stress and coping mechanisms, and from behavioral, relational, and structural perspectives. She is skilled with longitudinal and cross-domain analyses. Dr. Hsieh has received research funding as a PI or Co-I on grants from NIAAA, CDC, NIMHD, Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, DOJ, MDHHS, NCI and NICHD, mostly focused on the field of youth violence and injury prevention.
