Shin is a Research Scientist in the Environmental Health Science and Research Bureau of Health Canada and an adjunct professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of Queen s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Her research areas include statistical model development for environmental health risk, epidemiology, risk assessment and optimal experimental design. She has recently studied Air Health Indicator (AHI), Bias correction in risk estimates attributable to short-term exposure to ambient air pollution, Meta-analysis, and Critical time windows during pregnancy. <p> She received the  Best Paper Award of <a href="http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cjs.5550350303/full"> the Canadian Journal of Statistics</a>, presented by <a href="https://ssc.ca/en/awards/2008/hwashin-hyun-shin-glen-takahara-and-duncan-j-murdoch"> the Statistical Society of Canada</a> in 2008.
