 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Dr. Lauren Ng is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the Boston University School of Medicine. She completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology with a Child/Family Concentration at the University of Southern California (USC). Her doctoral research focused on the complex associations between genocide experiences, post-genocide risk factors, and mental health in orphaned survivors of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Dr. Ng conducted her clinical internship with a specialty in Trauma Psychology at USC-Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Yale University in 2004.

Her work focuses on the psychological impact of war, conflict, and daily hardships on children and families, risk and resilience factors in child and adolescent global mental health, and the development and assessment of culturally-appropriate evidence-based interventions for trauma and its correlates.
