My training focuses on the methodology for evidence-based health care (including clinical epidemiology, clinical trial and systematic review) and their applications to health technology assessment. Currently I am interested in using databases in Taiwan to conduct research for life course epidemiology, including the MJ Databases, Nutrition and Health Survey in Taiwan and Maternal and Child Health Database. For example, I wanted to learn the determinants of age at menopause among Taiwanese women and the future risk of diseases that is relevant to age at menopause.
