I am currently working as a research coordinator in the Global Health Research Center of Duke Kunshan University. Our project aims to improve health of stroke patients in rural China. Duke Kunshan gave me a chance to have an overview of existing global health challenges as well as find my own research interests in NCDs. My Duke Kunshan experiences of working with great professors and conducting my field study in Peru strengthened my ambition to reduce NCDs in resource-limited areas.
