Jeff Lin, Ph.D.

Jeff is a postdoctoral scholar working with Dr. Todd Braver. He received his PhD in clinical psychology from Michigan State University. His research broadly aims to elucidate the effects of mindfulness and other contemplative practices on cognitive control and emotion regulation. As a member of the WUSTL Aging and Development program, he hopes to leverage the tools of cognitive neuroscience and psychophysiology to extend his work on mindfulness toward the study of healthy aging. Jeff’s long-term aspiration is to develop an interdisciplinary research program that intersects the arts and sciences, drawing insights from psychology, neuroscience, religion, and philosophy to advance understanding and treatment of human suffering.
