    Priscilla Phan is a Visiting Graduate in UCSF Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute and a PsyD student in Clinical Psychology at the University of San Francisco. Phan is collaborating on with brainLENS where she administers psychological batteries to adolescents to measure and evaluate models of literacy acquisition, studying the impact that learning multiple languages may have on cognition, socio-emotional skills and creativity.

    Previously, Phan was an Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education (CTCRE) at UCSF. She is particularly interested in how different identities moderate one's decisions, actions, and healing. At CTCRE, Phan worked with the under-served Asian American community to develop a culturally appropriate anti-tobacco intervention.

    She is interested in how Asian Americans heal after a sexual assault, trauma-informed yoga for healing, military sexual trauma and reporting rates, and suicide in the military. For her dissertation, she aims to explore the help-seeking experiences of military sexual assault survivors.
