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 (J-IDEA). I obtained my PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Imperial College, and I also gained BEng, BEcon and MEng 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 other research experiences included the dynamics of particulate matters in indoor environment and modelling of population inhalation exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
