Jung-hye Shin is interested in the impact of homes and communities on the health and wellbeing of people who use them. Shin broadly interprets those experiences as an outcome of complex interactions among the physical structure, social relations, and sociocultural expectations that govern the building. Her most recent research has focused on the role of home and communities in helping older adults age in place. By listening to their lived experiences and observing to their everyday practices my hope is to create better policy discussions and design guidelines.
