I joined Imperial College London as a postdoctoral Research Associate after receiving my PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Hong Kong in 2018. My research interest is in applying multi-omics techniques such as epigenomics and metabolomics in epidemiological research to disentangle the mechanisms of complex diseases. I am also interested in applying Mendelian randomization to identify causal factors.

My current research focuses on the impacts of environment and lifestyle on cognitive functions and neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer’s disease.
