Becoming a violence exposure researcher wasn’t initially the plan for Hsing-Fang Hsieh, MPH ’06, PhD ’12, but an introduction to a University of Michigan School of Public Health faculty member and subsequent work on a youth resilience study paved the way for her new research path.

Now she is a research assistant professor at the University of Michigan Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention spearheading firearm violence prevention research, an area that has historically been understudied and underfunded. Research and data related to firearm injury prevention is of growing interest in the United States as researchers, policymakers and the public look for evidence-based solutions to curb the national crisis.
