Biographical details

I am an epidemiologist and population behavioural scientist. I work at the intersection of physical activity, epidemiology and chronic disease prevention. In 2012, I received my PhD from the Joint Doctoral Program in Public Health at the University of California San Diego and San Diego State University in the USA. I am passionate about and committed to improving population health through epidemiological research and behavioural change. At an early stage of my career, I have published more than 80 peer reviewed papers, including in top ranked journals such as the Lancet, Nature Climate Change, and PLOS Medicine. In 2016, I led a team of top researchers in the field in launching a successful Lancet series on physical activity (http://www.thelancet.com/series/physical-activity-2016). Many of my studies have contributed to informing the public about healthy living through wide media coverage around the world.

Teaching and supervision

I am co-coordinating a unit of study on Climate Change and Public Health. Ifrequently guest lecture on the topics of physical activity and public health, chronic disease prevention, built environment and health, and health issues in China.
