Research Interests

  • Mathematical & Statistical Model
  • Reporting Bias
  • Obesity/Nutrition Epidemiology

I have been applying mathematical and statistical models to solve public health issues. Specifically, I am interested in two research fields: obesity/nutrition and infectious diseases. For obesity/nutrition research, my interest is in measurement error of energy intake (or energy expenditure).

I am also interested in developing statical models to adjust such biases using combination of biomarker data which capture the magnitude of bias. (Key words: multiple imputation, Bayesian model).

Extending these COVID-19 works using the viral dynamics model, I am interested in modelling immunological response, which might help identify patients with high risk of mortality or hospitalization as early as possible.
