Peter KaHung Chan
Early Career Research Fellow
Peter is an Early Career Research Fellow in the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU). His research is based on the China Kadoorie Biobank and focuses on the understanding of the effects of environmental exposures (particularly air pollution and smoking) on major chronic diseases. He is particularly interested in integrating multi-dimensional data (e.g. wearable devices, OMICs) to assess the health impact of environmental exposures more accurately and comprehensively.
Before joining PHRU, Peter has received training in epidemiology, having obtained an MSc in Global Health Science and a DPhil in Population Health, both from the Nuffield Department of Population Health. He had also studied public health at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Johns Hopkins Blomberg School of Public Health, and Copenhagen School of Global Health.
