Research

I am investigating influenza epidemiology in China as part of the NIHR Evidence to Policy pathway to Immunisation in China (EPIC) project. Using mathematical modelling and health economics, I aim to estimate and evaluate the impact of introducing a centrally funded seasonal influenza vaccine programme on disease burden in mainland China.

This project aims to help decision-makers in China develop a vaccination programme that ensures reliable, affordable, equitable and uninterrupted supply of vaccines to the Chinese population. The project is an interdisciplinary and collaborative project with Public Health England, Fudan University and China CDC.
