My main research interests are the health impacts of climate change associated with urbanization and inequalities in the socioeconomic and environmental fields. Also, now I’m investigating interactive effects among sleep, environmental exposures, and health outcomes. Mental health, infectious disease, causality design, and advanced statistical modeling are also major issues for me. 

Christian, married, and liberalist. Cat is my life. A big fan of Red Velvet, Renoir, Ravel, Blue bottle, and Shake Shack. My hobbies are cooking, walking, and reading. I love to travel.
