I have a PhD in biomedical sciences and MSc in Biostatistics, and received post-doctoral training in nutrition epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health. I am an UNSW Scientia Fellow and hold an Associate Professor appointment at UNSW, and I am based at the George Institute for Global Health. My research and teaching focuses on tackling poor diet-related disease burden through 1) monitoring the food environment, and exploring the effectiveness of policy interventions to improve diet quality, and 2) investigating nutritional factors for cardiometabolic diseases prevention. My research have been published in top medical and nutrition journals including Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, PLOS Medicine, Circulation, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and JAMA Internal Medicine. I have received many highly competitive awards, fellowships and grants relative to opportunity, with total research funding of >$6million to date. I have a strong focus on translating my research finding to impact policy and practice.
