Dr Kai Jin
I hold degree in epidemiology and population health (PhD) from the University of Sydney. Prior to joining LSHTM, I worked as a health data science researcher and epidemiologist at Cancer Health Data Science of Usher Institute and the CRUK Brain Tumour Centre of Excellence at the University of Edinburgh. My research focused on understanding CVD risk in brain cancer patients using cancer registry data from US and UK by working with cross-disciplinary expertise in neuro-oncology and molecular epidemiology. My previous research focused on the preventive cardiology and cardiovascular inequalities using large data analysis.
My research includes cardiovascular disease, brain cancer and neuroepidemiology. I am interested in using health data to generate evidence to reduce inequalities and improve their care and outcomes. The main emphasis of my research has been in using population-based epidemiologic methods to identify the risk factors affecting health outcomes in cancer and cardiovascular disease using large-scale health data. I have experience in statistical modelling and analyzing health data linked to various sources.
