    Dr. Rachel Radin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. She studies the links between eating behaviors, stress, and metabolic health in adults. Dr. Radin very interested in developing, optimizing, and disseminating interventions to reduce dysregulated eating behavior, including stress-related eating, and improve metabolic health. She is currently funded by a K23 Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (K23 AT011048).

As a postdoctoral fellow at UCSF, she received an F32 National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) to investigate the impact of a mindfulness intervention (SHINE trial) on stress-related eating and endocrine and autonomic profiles of stress reactivity. She completed a PhD in Medical and Clinical Psychology from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in 2017 after completing a Pre-doctoral Internship in Pediatric Psychology at Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital.
