I am a Research Fellow in Health Analytics and Machine Learning in the Global Environmental Health Research Group and the Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics. I obtained my PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Imperial College London, and I gained BEng, BEcon and MEng in Civil Engineering from Tsinghua University.

My research interests lie in the intersection of population health, environment and data analytics. 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)
