My general training have been in Bayesian inference and methods in applications to the social sciences. My methodological training include multilevel regression and poststratification (MRP) method, Bayesian hierarchical (or multilevel/mixed) modelling, spatial modelling and causal inference while writing and coding up our own MCMC sampling methods. I also enjoy extracting insights from data and different ways of visualising the data and results.

The grants that I've worked under are secured by my research supervisors. They include the IBISWorld Industrial Grant awarded to Prof. Grace Chiu and Dr. Anton Westveld, and currently my postdoctoral project is under the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant in collaboration with Columbia University awarded to Prof. Andrew Gelman, Assoc. Prof. Qixuan Chen and Dr. Lauren Kennedy.

I have been involved with teaching and assisting with introductory statistics courses, regression modelling and applied statistics course at The Australian National University and Monash University. Most of the courses are taught in the programming language R and Microsoft Excel. Currently I'm co-lecturing the Data visualisation and analytics course at Monash University.
