My name is Dr. Hy V. Huynh. I'm a researcher
and a practitioner / a scientist and an artist.







After receiving my doctorate in community psychology and acquiring over a decade of domestic and international experience as a community development practitioner, I joined the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research (CHPIR) at Duke University as an Associate in Research.

Much of my research interests have a strong focus on child protection and inclusion and child and adolescent mental health disparities, particularly for marginalized youth populations such as orphaned and separated children, immigrant/refugee youth, youth of color, and LGBTQ youth in low- and middle- income contexts.


 

I'm also a professional humanitarian photographer. I help humanitarian professionals maximize their social impact with ethical and human-centered visual storytelling. So much of my community psychology background informs my thoughtful and intentional approach to photography.




 

Finally, I run a social impact website design studio called LocaltoGlobalDesign. We create visually meaningful websites for socially conscious entrepreneurs, small businesses, and community organizations and strive to design with a social justice lens that embraces equity over equality.
