Biography
Dr Ni joined the School of Public Health at HKU in 2021. She has a Bachelor's degree in Public Health and a Master's degree in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics. She graduated with a PhD in Global Health from University College London (UCL) in 2018 and subsequently worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at UCL and the University of Warwick (UK). Her research is interdisciplinary and focuses on the effects of perinatal adversity (e.g., preterm birth) and childhood adverse experiences on children and young people’s life course development (e.g., mental health, social functioning, health-related quality of life) using large-scale longitudinal datasets in diverse contexts. She was actively involved in two large-scale international research projects: (1) RECAP Preterm, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 and (2) EPICure, funded by the UK Medical Research Council. She received a small grant from the Universities' China Committee in London and the Malaysia Scholarship Award during her PhD.
