Born in Guangzhou Cohort Study
Visiting Research Fellow
BSc MPhil PhD FFOM (Hon.)
Associate Professor, Course Director – MSc Global Health Science and Epidemiology
Hubert is an epidemiologist at the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit and a visiting research fellow at the Born in Guangzhou Cohort Study Department, Guangzhou Women and Children’s Medical Center. He completed a BSc in Biochemistry and an MPhil in Medical Sciences at the Chinese University of Hong Kong before gaining a PhD in Epidemiology (Birmingham). He came to Oxford in 2015 after 5 years as a lecturer in environmental and occupational epidemiology at the University of Birmingham.
Hubert is the Course Director for the MSc in Global Health Science and Epidemiology, providing leadership and overseeing the day-to-day management of the MSc course and the associated PGCert in Statistics and Epidemiology. He is also a module lead, lecturer, and tutor for the Principles of Epidemiology module. In 2020, Hubert was elected as an Honorary Fellow of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland in recognition of his contribution to the teaching of epidemiology in the occupational medicine community.
Hubert is leading the Environmental Epidemiology research theme within the China Kadoorie Biobank, investigating the health effects of environmental exposures (primarily air pollution and sub-optimal temperature). His main research interest is in the development and application of new technology in enhancing environmental exposure assessment to help better quantification of health burdens. Between 2010 and 2016 Hubert was a co-opted member of the Quantification of Health Effects of Air Pollutants Sub-Committee under the governmental advisory Committee on the Medical Aspects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP).
