I’ve been studying and working in public health sector for more than 10 years, with primary focus on applying bio-statistics tools to assess environmental risk by using R software. I received my bachelor’s degree in Medicine, Master’s degree in Science from Peking University, China, and PhD from Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Then I joined National Institute for Environmental Studies, Japan in 2016 to participate in the Japan Environment and Children’s Study (JECS) as a research fellow until 2018, and then as a collaborative researcher until now.


“Epidemiology” and “Statistics for Population Health” modules in semester 1 and 3


I’m an environmental epidemiologist with a focus on the health impact of air pollution and climate change. I’ve investigated future trends of PM2.5 and O3 related mortality in China under different emission scenarios for my PhD research. Currently I’ve been working to assess air pollution-related health impact at individual level by applying exposure monitoring sensors. At the same time, I’ve been studying how the changing climate is influencing the seasonal pattern of mortality in 47 countries, including Japan.
