Social determinants of health

Brief description of your research work

Mainly focuses on two topics: the social determinants of health and Gene-environment interaction. Regarding the first topic, I try to examine how education shapes health across the life course. Regarding the second topic, I try to employ genetic information in analysis: to 1) examine how social determinants moderate the genetic risk score (GRS) of some diseases (e.g., depression), and 2) use Mendelian Randomization analysis to explore the causality.
