Author Bio

Ki Eun (Kay) Shin is a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at the Pennsylvania State University, under the mentorship of Dr. Michelle Newman. Her research interests focus on understanding emotional and interpersonal processes and treatment mechanisms in anxiety disorders. Kay has a strong interest in utilizing diverse research methods (e.g., experimental, archival, and ecological momentary assessment) in answering her research questions. Her past projects included examining interpersonal specificity between generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder, and depression, differentiating between GAD and panic disorder on developmental etiological factors, and identifying daily emotional experiences that mediate long-term maintenance and comorbidity in depression and GAD. Kay also tested a novel way to enhance outcomes of exposure, using retrieval cues, and used time-series analytic methods (time-varying effect modeling) to elucidate treatment process in GAD. For her dissertation, Kay is using ecological momentary assessment and network analysis to examine comorbidity between GAD and depression at the level of daily symptoms. Starting in September, 2019, Kay will join the psychology department at SUNY Upstate Medical University for her clinical internship.
