I am a doctoral student at Harvard School of Public Health with special interest in global Health epidemiology in non-communicable diseases. I am also a Bernard Lown Scholars in Cardiovascular Health at Harvard. My current research focuses on mediation analysis of effects of overweight/obesity on cardiovascular diseases, assessing the combined effect of 4 major risk factors (i.e., obesity, high blood pressure, serum cholesterol, and blood glucose) on cardiovascular diseases at the population level, comparing the racial disparities of heart disease risk in US and updating the global estimates of cardio-metabolic risk factor distributions. My work includes a meta-analysis of 97 prospective cohorts and almost 2 million participants, and advanced survival analysis of 10 prospective cohorts from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
I hold a MSc. from Harvard, at the department of Global Health and Population. Prior to Harvard, I graduated with the high honor from Fudan University School of Public Health. My thesis on income mechanism of village doctors under framework of Shanghai integrated management of rural health organizations was awarded as Best Bachelor Thesis in Health Economics Department.
