overview I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Division of Women's Health at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. I have a background in environmental epidemiology and have led or contributed to multiple epidemiological and epigenome-wide studies investigating environmental and behavioral risk factors related to maternal health, fetal growth, and human aging in several Chinese cohorts. I am interested in women's health, sex differences, cardiometabolic disease, (epi)genetics, and integrated omics. My current research primarily focuses on the investigation of risk factors and underlying mechanisms of coronary heart disease, ischemic stroke, and type 2 diabetes. I am leading several multi-cohort projects identifying hormonal, inflammatory, metabolomic, and genetic factors related to cardiometabolic risk, using data from the Women's Health Initiative, Nurses' Health Studies, Health Professional Follow-up Study, Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis, and UK Biobank. I am also leading, co-leading, or participating in several consortium metabolomics and epigenetics projects in the Trans-Omics for Precision Medicine (TOPMed), Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology (CHARGE), and COnsortium of METabolomics Studies (COMETS).
