BSc, MAppStats, PhD
School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health, Nagasaki University, Japan
Chris received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (USA) (2002), a Master of Applied Statistics with distinction from the University of Malaya (Malaysia) (2005), and a PhD in Health Science from the University of Tokyo (Japan) (2011) for research on statistical method to measure the relative performance of post-market treatments in the absence of suitable controls. Following completion of his PhD, he went on to hold a postdoctoral position at the National Institute for Environmental Studies (Japan) where he studied the health effects of ambient temperatures and air pollution in Japan. In 2013, he became a postdoctoral fellow under the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and expanded his work on environmental pollution and health to the developing countries in the tropics. He continued his work as an assistant professor at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University (Japan), from late 2015 until early 2018. In April 2018, he joined the School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health at the same university as an Associate Professor. He was a Rutherford Fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (United Kingdom) between August 2018 to January 2019.
Chris teaches biostatistics and environmental epidemiology at the School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health at Nagasaki University, and previously, the School of International Health at the University of Tokyo. He has previously organized and taught undergraduate courses in statistics, actuarial mathematics, and quantitative analysis.
Chris is interested in environmental epidemiology and the related statistical methods. His research focuses on the assessment of human health risk associated with atmospheric exposures such as air pollution, ambient temperatures, airborne pollen, and intercontinental dust events. He is currently leading a multi-city study to quantify the mortality risk of desert dust pollution identified using a hybrid of ground- and space-borne measurements. He is also leading a project to measure the health impacts of landscape fires that affect the air quality of many Southeast Asian cities. Recently, he has completed a project that investigates the associations of fine particulate matter, its chemical constituents and sources with the lung function of severe asthma patients exposed to a low level of air pollution.
Given his extensive training in applied statistics, Chris is also interested in the application of statistics in a multidisciplinary context involving other health fields and looks forward to working with researchers from different backgrounds.
Studies and collaborations in Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and China.
In a digital age where data are collected faster and greater in quantity, strong quantitative skills are important to extract useful information for meaningful interpretations to inform policies. Statistics is central to this process. As you begin your journey with us, there will be opportunities to gain knowledge in statistical inference and develop skills in data analysis. You will learn to appreciate the data-driven approach in epidemiology. I look forward to meeting students and researchers interested in utilizing these skills to improve health.

Department of Immunogenetics, Institute of Tropical Medicine (NEKKEN), Nagasaki University
I earned my M.D. as the valedictorian at Ho Chi Minh University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) in 1996. Then I worked as an intern clinical medical doctor at Infectious Diseases Department of Ho Chi Minh University of Medicine and Pharmacy and also worked at the Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Ho Chi Minh City until 1998. In 2002, I gained my PhD at Kyoto Institute of Technology (Kyoto, Japan) with a thesis on the antimalarial mechanism. Between 2002 and 2007, I worked a postdoctoral fellow at Kyoto Institute of Technology. From 2007, I have been working and teaching for Nagasaki University on a broad field of research including clinical research, epidemiology, global health, ethical issues, education, research methodology, evidence based, and health policy using various skill sets of biostatistics, data mining, survey, and systematic review and meta-analysis.
-Systematic Review and Meta-analysis: Interpretation and Conduction
-Key skill of “how to write a literature review of dissertation and efficient search”.
-All steps of conducting clinical research, systematic review/meta-analysis, and health survey (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1060208227483290)
My “teaching slogan” is “anyone can do research and publish the paper under the proper supervision”. Therefore, my teaching mainly focuses on conducting real research and learn from failure and success of each research. Because I have experience in various fields of medicine and health, I am able to help students in further discussion of developing their ideas, should they have difficulty finding a supervisor in those particular fields.
I established the Online Research Club for medical students in 2010 to enhance global medical students’ research success, using an online education program. On the occasional of joining TMGH this year, I opened an Online Research Education Program (ORCEP) for TMGH students and alumni to continuously learn with global students and help one another. The Online Research Education Program (ORCEP) provides an online Facebook-based mentoring platform and research environment for students to explore the world of research under the supervision of established researchers. The ORCEP serves to equip students with basic research knowledge and practical skills in conducting research, which includes idea development, protocol preparation, data collection and management, advanced scientific writing, data analysis, collaboration, and leadership. Health and medical students, as well as young health care workers without any research experiences, along with research supervisors in the field of medicine and global health, are all welcome to join the program by sending email to email@example.com or requesting to join the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1060208227483290/. An active new student can expect to gain the experience to conduct research and get at least one publication after two years.
All TMGH students and alumni are welcome to join. Non-TMGH students, however, must 1) have a valid ID card, a transparent and active Facebook; 2) have not joined or conducted any research yet; 3) have not involved in any research group yet; and 4) spend at least 30 min per day to learn and conduct the research.
MBBS, MTM, PhD
I received my medical degree from BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences (BPKIHS), Nepal in 2005 and then worked for three years in paediatric hospitals in Nepal followed by one year in a refugee camp for Somali and Ethiopian refugees under UNHCR in Djibouti. Between 2010-11, I completed the Master of Tropical Medicine (MTM) programme in the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University and then a PhD in the Department of Clinical Medicine of the same institute between 2011 and 2014. In 2014, I was a Fellow of the Global (Health) Leadership Program at the University of Tokyo and completed an internship at the headquarters of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva. My research interests are infectious diseases, child health and development of new diagnostic assays. In 2014, we established a new diagnostic assay for serotyping the pneumococcus (a major cause of pneumonia). The assay can identify vaccine serotypes easily and conveniently at a relatively low cost and has been applied in studies in Japan, Vietnam and Afghanistan.
At TMGH, I teach master students about essential skills and tropical medicine (clinical bacteriology and molecular diagnostic technique), and organize and facilitate clinical case discussion between the students and doctors in San Lazaro Hospital (Philippians), Bach Mai Hospital (Vietnam) and National Center for Global Health and Medicine (Japan).
Previously I taught advanced paediatric life support (APLS) course to junior medical doctors in Siddhartha Children and Women Hospital, Nepal and child health and management of malnutrition to medical and nursing staffs in Djibouti.
I have studied the distribution of pneumococcal serotypes in hospital admitted children and adults in Japan, Vietnam and Afghanistan with a particular focus on the estimation of pneumococcal vaccine coverage.
After I participated in relief efforts following the earthquake in 2015 in Nepal, we are developing a research collaboration with Siddhi Memorial Hospital, Bhaktapur (http://smf.org.np). The focus is on childhood infectious diseases and malnutrition. We are supporting hospital disease surveillance and have conducted nutritional assessments of children who were displaced by the earthquake and living under temporary shelters.
At TMGH, we are establishing new diagnostic assays for typhoid fever based on real-time PCR and loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP). We plan to evaluate these assays in Nepal and other field sites.

Clinical infectious diseases, child health and vaccination are some of the inter-related exciting fields of global health.
We have been working in these areas and found that there are lots to discover, learn and contribute on these topics globally.
We hope you will find them interesting and contribute while you study here at TMGH. Welcome!

I am currently involved in research teams on global aging, especially focusing on future aging and social welfare in Africa. Both qualitative and quantitative research on elderly life, health, care and social protection will be carried out in East Africa; Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, and Zambia.
MD, MSc, PhD
I have been working in the field of maternal health. Pregnancy and childbirth are mostly physiological processes. In some cases, however, there are pathological aspects as well. Both physiology and pathology must be taken into account when considering maternal health. Unfortunately, only pathological phenomenon is focused on, as exemplified in the saying that “Every pregnancy is a risk”. Therefore, there is a huge misuse of medical interventions observed, both in developing and industrialized countries. We should strive to find an optimal point in between the two, keeping in mind that that point is variable. There is no “magic bullet” in the field of public health. We must think together how we can change this world.
I am in charge of the two following modules
