About

Having worked in academia, non-profit, and now industry, I want to bring together the innovative spirits across research and technology to improve public health. My main data science interest is in integrating multiple sources of data, particularly genomics + count data. Additionally, I want to operationize mathematical modeling to be used in an automated and scalable way to maximize impact.

Interests

  • Dynamic and stochastic models of infectious diseases
  • Statistical inference/learning - how to infer unobserved quantities and predict future events
  • Phylodynamics - using genetic data to understand how infectious diseases spread
  • Electronic health records and automated mathematical modeling
  • Mobility data + genomic data

Positions

Education

  • PhD in Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London, UK (2013-2017)
  • Computational Biology MPhil with Distinction at University of Cambridge, UK (2012-2013)
  • Biology BSc with First Class Honours at Imperial College London, UK (2009-2012)

Life outside of science

Having lived in China, UK, and the USA, I have accumulated an amalgam of accents and interests.
