I am a postdoctoral researcher and joined Oxford Centre for the Endocrinology of Human Lactation (OCEHL) leaded by Professor Fadil Hannan.
My main research is focused on the application of inter-disciplinary scientific methodology to investigate the determinants of successful human milk production, whilst establishing ‘standards’ for the major lactation-associated hormones during the lactation cycle. In addition, I also investigate the endocrine communication between mother and infant via human milk.
Prior to my postdoctoral, I obtained DPhil in reproductive sciences at the Nuffield Department of Women’s & Reproductive Health, University of Oxford. I completed my MSc in Medical Sciences at University of Hong Kong and a BSc in Clinical Medicine at Harbin Medical University, China
