I completed my PhD in Microbial Evolution and Systematics (2005) at the Department of Ecology and Biodiversity,The University of Hong Kong, and then spent 4 years doing post-doctoral research at the State Key Laboratory of Emerging Infectious Diseases at HKU. I moved to Singapore in 2010 to take up a Faulty position in the Program of Emerging Infectious Diseases at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School. In 2016, I moved to Melbourne to lead the Virus Evolution group at the Department of Microbiology, Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University, Australia, where we conduct genomic surveillance and phylogenetic analysis to understand the factors that affect pathogen diversity in humans and animals.
