I am a PhD student at Children’s Health & Exercise Research Centre (CHERC) funded by China Scholarship Council and University of Exeter PhD Scholarships. I completed my MSc 2019/2020 in Sport and Health Sciences at University of Exeter, examining the influence of physical activity on bone architecture.

My PhD research focuses on physical activity, bone health and body composition among children and adolescents. It is hoped this research will provide new evidence about healthy behaviour promoting bone health and improving quality of life.
