About me

I am a postdoc researcher in psychiatric epidemiology at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. I am doing epidemiological research based on national health registers, twin research using the Swedish twin register, as well as systematic review and meta-analyses on ADHD. I am particularly interested in clinical epidemiology, so I had worked as a clinical epidemiologist in Fetal Medicine Unit of Shanghai First Maternity and Infant Hospital from 2016 to 2017.
