I am an epidemiologist and pharmacist, with my research primarily focusing on the surveillance of infectious diseases in England and the evaluation of vaccine efficacy and safety. I currently use primary care data from the Oxford-Royal College of General Practitioners Research and Surveillance Centre (Oxford-RCGP RSC), which collects data from more than 1900 practices across England and Wales, to evaluate the trend of respiratory infectious disease in the UK. I am also experienced in using primary care data from Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) and its linked external databases.

Prior to joining the University of Oxford, I completed my PhD in pharmacoepidemiology at the University of Manchester. I earned a master's degree in clinical pharmacy from Peking University and a bachelor's degree in pharmaceutical science from Sun Yat-Sen University.
