Assistant Professor, Department of Population Health

smoking cessation, mobile health, alternative tobacco use, health disparities

My research focuses on mobile technology-mediated smoking cessation interventions and multilevel determinants of alternative tobacco use including e-cigarette use. In 2020, I received a NIH/NIMHD career development award (K01MD014165) to examine the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary effectiveness of a culturally adapted WeChat-based smoking cessation intervention targeting Chinese immigrant smokers. In 2021, I received a NIH/NCI award (R21CA260423) to examine the longitudinal impact of e-cigarette marketing and product characteristics (e.g., flavors and device types) on tobacco use behaviors among U.S. youth and adults, and health effects of e-cigarette use. 

I received my BS in nursing from Peking Union Medical College in China, and my MS in health promotion and PhD in health behavior from Indiana University. I completed postdoctoral training in the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at the University of California San Francisco. Prior to joining the faculty at NYU Langone, I was a research assistant professor at the University of Hong Kong's School of Public Health, where I served as principal investigator on several studies that investigated e-cigarette use and tobacco marketing in Hong Kong and mainland China.
