About me

  • I am an epidemiologist, with research interests within the field of cancer
    and diabetes. In MEB, I work as a post-doc researcher with Prof Kamila Czene,
    with my research focused on understanding the risk and prognosis of breast
    cancer with different molecular subtypes and modes of detection.
    PhD, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia
    Master of Medicine (Epidemiology and Biostatistics), Sun Yat-sen University
    (SYSU), Guangzhou, China
    Bachelor of Medicine, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST),
    Wuhan, China


  • Before moving to the field of cancer, my PhD research focused on disease
    burden, outcome predictors of diabetes-related complications, and the
    assessment of the cost-effectiveness of guideline-based care for patients to
    reduce the future burden. This project encompassed clinical science,
    epidemiology, statistics, and health economics. I like working with data,
    and am skilled in data linkage, cleaning, manipulation, analysis and
    visualisation. I had experience in building multiple model types, including
    survival models (semi-parametric, standard, flexible parametric survival
    models and post estimation predictions), Markov model and Discrete Event
    Simulation to answer cost-effectiveness questions, using statistical software
    including Stata, R, and TreeAge Pro.
