I have originally trained as a mathematical engineer, focusing on mathematical modelling for infectious disease. After the completion of my Ph.D. degree, I started my carrier in nutrition/obesity research.

Research Interests

My research interests include obesity, mathematical model and statistical methodology. For the last few years, I've been involved in the following projects: (1) mathematical model for intergenerational propagation of obesity; (2) obesity and mortality (disability) association; (3) statistical methods for nutrition/obesity study.
