My research attempts to investigate how geography plays the significant role in understanding health disparities of chronic diseases. Spatial patterns, including spatial clusters and spatial outliers would both be explored to comprehensively understand how different categories of exposures, including built environment, individual characteristics and genetic variations result in geographical variations of health outcomes. This research would utilize advanced statistical methods and spatial regression models to predict prevalence of chronic diseases with consideration of spatially varying influence of exposures rather than one-size-fit-all effective size.
I started to study in University of Bristol, School of Geographical Sciences since 2018 as a 1+3 (MRes & PhD) Advanced Quantitative Methods student with 1+3 South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP) ESRC studentship. I am co-supervised by Professor Richard Harris and Dr Emmanouil Tranos.
Prior to studying in University of Bristol, I completed MSc Geographic Information Science (GIS) in University of College London, Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering. I completed BSc (HONS) Geomatics (Geo-Information Technology) in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics.
