Now: Assistant Professor, Massachusetts General Hosital & Harvard Medical School.
2017-2020, postdoc fellow with Dr. Liming Liang and Dr David Christiani. I received doctoral of science degree in Environmental and Molecular Epidemiology at Harvard T.H.Chan School of Public Health. My research interests mainly include identifying the shared effect of genetic and epigenetic components for respiratory and immune illnesses, such as asthma, allergy and COPD using large scale UK Biobank and GWAS consortium data, and I hope to transform the research findings into community prevention and clinical intervention.
