I am a social epidemiologist with expertise in tobacco regulatory science, obesity epidemiology, and migration studies. Prior to my academic career, I worked in large global health and development agencies managing tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, malaria, drug abuse, and maternal and child health programs in China and Myanmar. My dissertation research addressed critical questions related to child well-being in the context of massive rural-urban migration in China. My research assessed how migration influenced family- and community-level processes and how the changes in family dynamic influence child health and cognitive development.

My current research focuses on three areas: 1) assessing cardiopulmonary effects of e-cigarette use, and the mechanisms using biomarkers of urinary exposure to harmful and potentially harmful constituents, and stratifying adult cardiovascular risk according to biomarker signatures and their association with e-cigarette use behaviors and product characteristics; 2) examining obesity progression and weight loss on disease incidence and mortality using large electronic health record data, quantifying the impact of obesity on the US life expectancy trend; 3) investigating the health implication of rural-urban migration on migrants, their families, and rural communities in China. My publications has appeared in international peer review journals in epidemiology, demography, and social science such as JAMA network open, Circulation, Population Space and Place, Population Research and Policy Review and JAMA neurology.
