I’m Julie V. Dinh, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor of Psychology at City University of New York, Baruch College. My name is pronounced Joo-lee Dih-n and my pronouns are she/hers.

My research focuses on diversity, interventions, and health. Broadly speaking, I seek to apply organizational science to improve engagement and equitable outcomes, particularly within healthcare contexts. My work has been published by Human Factors, The Journal of Clinical Psychology, The Journal for Graduate Medical Education, Leadership Quarterly, Organizational Dynamics, People + Strategy, and Small Group Research. My research has secured grant funding from the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology (SIOP) and recognition by the American Public Health Association (APHA).

I earned my B.A. in Psychology (highest honors in Psychology, magna cum laude) from the University of California, Berkeley, and Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Rice University. In 2016, I received a Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation. I have conducted research across a number of disciplines, including public health and health, social, and clinical psychology. In these efforts, I have partnered with several academic medical centers, including the University of California, San Francisco, the San Francisco VA Medical Center, Baylor College of Medicine, and Texas Children’s Hospital. Additionally, I advise within other industries, such as diversity consultancy groups, human resources management organizations, and aerospace and military administrations.

I care deeply about mentoring, educating, and engaging in projects that can tangibly improve working environments. I have hosted a number of speaking arrangements and workshops, including on grant-writing, presentation of translational science, conducting qualitative research, and leading teams.

I am originally from Orange County, California. In my spare time, you can find me:

  • in the kitchen cooking — I used to dream of being a food writer;
  • in the yoga studio practicing — I’m a certified yoga teacher;
  • on my coach reading — and watching awful reality television; and
  • taking my dog to the park — Kirby, our lab mascot, pictured.
