Yuyang Zhong

Lab Manager &
Research Associate

Yuyang serves as the full-time lab manager & research associate for Dr. Nick Camp’s Mind in Society Lab. His research interests lie in the interaction of culture, stigma, and identity formation, with an emphasis in Asian/Asian American queer & trans identities and culturally specific stigma. He’s also keen on issues surrounding the replication crisis in psychology and open science practices (watch his flash talk at the 2021 APS Convention here), as well as data privacy & ethics.

Yuyang received his degrees in psychology and data science from the University of California, Berkeley in 2021, graduating with honors and distinction. Prior to UM, he was a data science civic digital fellow with the Office of AIDS Research in the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where he used natural language processing/topical modeling to automate the encoding of HIV/AIDS grants across the NIH. He also worked in development throughout this time at Berkeley, where he developed and oversaw the donor acknowledgment process for the College of Letters & Science. In his free time, Yuyang enjoys cooking, traveling, listening to music, and catching up with friends.
