Lindsay Hoyt is interested in social, psychological, and behavioral contributions to positive health and wellness. In particular, her work examines positive health across adolescence, a sensitive period of development when individual experiences can have longstanding effects on lifelong health. In her dissertation, she explores the relationship between positive psychological well-being, pubertal timing, and biomarkers of stress and health. As a Robert Wood Johnson Health & Society Scholar, she will be seeking new methods to measure and promote positive health for youth. Lindsay is a strong proponent of multidisciplinary and policy-relevant research. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Notre Dame, with a double major is Psychology and Peace Studies. She is currently a doctoral candidate at Northwestern University in the Department of Human Development and Social Policy, as well as an active member of Cells to Society (C2S): The Center on Social Disparities and Health at the Institute for Policy Research.
