Join us in congratulating Dr. Nancy Sin, who received the Springer Early Career Achievement Award in Research on Adult Development and Aging, from Division 20 of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Sin, who is an assistant professor in the department of psychology’s health area, will accept the award in person at the APA convention taking place in Chicago in August 2019.
The Springer Early Career Achievement Award is designed to honour an individual whose work has made significant early career contributions to understanding critical issues in the psychology of adult development and aging.
Psychology of adult development and aging
In the face of aging-related challenges, how can we promote psychosocial well-being, stress resilience, and health? To tackle this question, Dr. Sin’s program of research examines biobehavioral and stress-related mechanisms that underlie psychosocial well-being and healthy aging. She pursues several interrelated lines of inquiry: (1) positive well-being and aging-related health outcomes, (2) the role of positive experiences in stress and coping, and (3) inter- and intraindividual psychological determinants of health in later life.
“The Springer Early Career Achievement Award is an amazing honour! I am beyond thrilled and deeply grateful to be recognized for my research in adult development and aging.”
Dr. Sin directs the Understanding Pathways Linking Inter- and Intraindividual Factors to Health Laboratory (UPLIFT Health Lab), which examines biological, behavioural, and stress-related mechanisms that underlie psychosocial well-being and healthy aging.
