I am a Research Associate in Population Health and Global Health in the Global Environmental Health Research Group. I obtained my PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Imperial College, and I also gained BEng, BEcon and MSc in Civil Engineering from Tsinghua University.

My research interests lie primarily at the intersection between health and environment. I am currently working on the worldwide trends in blood pressure and diabetes, their determinants and treatment coverage, under the NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC). My previous research experiences include the dynamics of particulate matters in indoor environment and modelling of population inhalation exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
