I as a PhD student funded by China Scholarship Council and University of Exeter PhD Scholarships joined the Children’s Health & Exercise Research Centre (CHERC) in 2022. I completed my MSc 2019/2020 in Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter, conducting research on the determinants in aerobic fitness in overweight/obese and lean children.

My PhD research focuses on the physical activity (PA), nutrition, and cardiovascular health in young childhood cancer survivors (CCS). This research is hoped to shed more light on the dietary intake and PA habits of CCS, as well as provide new evidence on the relationship between nutrition and PA and cardiovascular health in CCS.
