Summary

I am a cardiovascular epidemiologist, and my research focuses on community, clinical and policy-based initiatives for the reduction of chronic disease morbidity and mortality. I have particular interest in improving cardio-metabolic health and lifestyle behaviors, including physical activity and nutrition in Asian American communities.

Prior to joining faculty at the NYU School of Medicine in 2014, I worked for six years at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) in the Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention and Tobacco Control on research pertaining to and evaluation of city nutrition policies and community-based initiatives to reduce the burden of chronic disease. At the NYU School of Medicine, I have deepened my expertise on health disparities in Asian American and immigrant populations and community-based, collaborative research approaches. Given these experiences, I possess a unique viewpoint on health, policy and research that encompasses both a citywide perspective paired with an understanding of specific health needs of disparity subgroups.
