Dr. Eun-Young Mun
Professor, Department of Health Behavior and Health Systems
Education & Experience:
I received my PhD in Psychology from Michigan State University. Prior to joining the HSC School of Public Health faculty in January 2018, I held faculty positions at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), from 2002-2006, and Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, from 2006-2017.
Teaching Areas & Public Health Interests:
I have over 25 years of teaching experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I have taught courses in human development, adolescent and young adult health behavior, and applied statistical methods. At HSC, I have taught scientific writing courses for MS and PhD students to help guide discovery-based manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals, as well as advanced seminar courses in biostatistics for PhD students. Over my career, I have trained many undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows for research. Many trainees have published their research in high-impact peer-reviewed journals, secured funding from the National Institutes of Health and subsequently launched successful careers in research-intensive universities as faculty members or in technology or financial industries.
Professional Activities & Awards:
I am an active member of several national organizations, including the American Public Health Association (APHA), the American Statistical Association (ASA), the Association for Psychological Science (APS), the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) and the Society for Prevention Research (SPR). I have also served on NIH grant review committees as a standing member or ad hoc member continuously since 2010. In addition, I have served on editorial boards for several peer-reviewed journals and reviewed manuscripts for more than 30+ different journals.
I have two broad research goals – One is to provide trustworthy answers on “what works and for whom” for the field of alcohol misuse prevention for young adults, and the other is to develop and apply innovative statistical methods to address the former. My research utilizes large data sets and advanced research methods to provide evidence of comparative effectiveness and adverse outcomes of competing alcohol interventions. Outcomes from this line of inquiry can be used to help optimize existing interventions. To access publicly available articles, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/myncbi/eun-young.mun.2/bibliography/public/
