My name is Sooyeon (Aly) Suh and I'm a clinical health psychologist and professor of psychology at Sungshin University, Dept. of Psychology.

Broadly, my main interests lie in understanding how behavioral

and psychological factors interact with physical health and eventually develop into chronic illness. 

My specific interests are in behavioral sleep medicine, especially developing psychological treatments for sleep disorders. I am also very interested in women's mental health issues.
