Ivan Wu, PhD
As a trained clinical psychologist, my research seeks to understand the mechanisms underlying social determinants of minority-related stress, lifestyle behaviors, and health to inform culturally appropriate and sensitive community-based behavioral interventions drawing upon principles of community-based participatory research. Before coming to Minneapolis, I worked in the Department of Health Disparities Research at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center examining how interpersonal and neighborhood-related stressors impact physical activity and sleep, and the role of cancer stigma and culture in survivors' quality of life.
