Kaja Z LeWinn, Sc.D., is an epidemiologist and assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Child and Adolescent Division. Dr. LeWinn attained her doctorate in Social Epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health and completed fellowships through the Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholars Program and the Clinical Services Research Training Program at UCSF. In her current research, Dr. LeWinn integrates approaches from social epidemiology, psychology, and neuroscience to examine how social contexts shape emotion regulation development and the underlying neural circuitry that supports these skills. Dr. LeWinn is supported by an NIMH K01 Career Development Award that focuses on understanding the role of social engagement in the development of emotion regulation, its underlying neural circuitry, and risk for depression during adolescence. Dr. LeWinn is dedicated to applying her work to the prevention of mental health disorders. She works closely with the San Francisco Unified School District to address the emotional well being of students, and is assisting their efforts to identify needs, evaluate current programming and interventions, and develop novel preventive interventions that promote mental health.
