Brian Keum, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Social Welfare at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. He received his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at the University of Maryland-College Park and completed his American Psychological Association-Accredited Internship at the University of Maryland Counseling Center. Prior to his doctoral education, he earned his M.A. in Mental Health Counseling from Columbia University Teachers College and a B.S. in Anatomy and Cell Biology from McGill University. Using an interdisciplinary framework drawing from theories of racism, online communication, human-computer interactions, and violence, Dr. Keum’s primary research examines the biopsychosocial impact of online racism and racial violence in today’s digital society. He is particularly interested in exploring the health and mental health implications of online racism among developmentally vulnerable and digitally-connected (e.g., Gen Z) populations, including adolescents and emerging adults of color. His research has been funded and recognized by multiple divisions of the American Psychological Association (General Psychology; Counseling Psychology; Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity, and Race; Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy; Advancement of Psychotherapy), the American Psychological Foundation, the Asian American Psychological Association, Society for Psychotherapy Research, Active Minds, and by Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
