Post-doctoral Fellow

Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics

  • PhD, MMed, BMed

Dr He obtained her PhD degree in the School of Public Health, the University of Hong Kong in 2020. 

Her doctoral research mainly focused on the association of early life exposures with lung function and asthma from a life course perspective, based on the evidence from “Children of 1997” Hong Kong Chinese birth cohort and the Mendelian Randomization studies. Her current research interests include the associations of growth trajectories, dietary exposures and relevant factors with respiratory and cardiovascular outcomes.
