Expertise:
Since arriving at the Department of Public Health at the National Cheng Kung University in the Fall of 2013, I have established a research profile on adolescent health in Taiwan as my primary research focus and a secondary focus on sexually transmitted infection among men who have sex with men. I maintain a heavy emphasis on methodology and statistics, and have utilized methods such as propensity score matching in the causal inference framework, latent growth curve models and mediation analysis in my published work. My research interests include:

1. Adolescent health
2. HPV in men who have sex with men
3. Minority health
4. Health behavior and behavioral intervention
5. Social network analysis
