Environmental and cardiovascular epidemiology
Peter is an Oxford British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence Intermediate Transition Research Fellow in the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU). His research is based on the China Kadoorie Biobank and UK Biobank and focuses on the understanding of the effects of environmental exposures on major chronic diseases, particularly cardiovascular disease. 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 CTSU, 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 Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Copenhagen School of Global Health.
