More about me

I am originally from Xi’an, China. I received my MSc in Statistics from Imperial College London in 2016, then started my PhD at Oslo Center for Biostatistics and Epidemiology, University of Oslo, Norway.

I have recently (October 2020) joined the Department of Infectious Diseases Epidemiology and Modeling at Norwegian Institute of Public Health (Folkehelseinstittutet) as a researcher. My team works on real time surveillance system, Sykdomspulsen.

Outside work I enjoy traveling and hiking. Due to the ongoing covid pandemic, I started and became an avid player of the Nintendo game: Animal Crossing New Horizon.

More about the site

This site is the 2nd version (using distill) since I started using R to build websites, the 1st being blogdown. There are two reasons for switching:

  1. My old blogdown site used the famous theme academic, yet I found it overly complicated to have a simple layout.

  2. The new package distill only offers one theme, yet I could still change the color and fonts (which are enough!) For simplicity, it is time to switch.
