Grace Ding

Grace graduated from Columbia University in 2021 with a major in Psychology and concentration in Business Management. As an undergraduate, Grace worked at the Social and Moral Cognition Lab at Columbia, studying cognitive mechanisms that underlie children’s development of social and moral perceptions. Grace also volunteered as a peer listener for Nightline, which is Columbia and Barnard’s student-run anonymous mental health helpline. Grace’s research interests include the mechanisms and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, as well as cultural and family related risk and protective factors. After the DCRP, Grace hopes to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology, with a focus on mood and anxiety disorders in children, adolescents, and adults.
