Welcome to my website!

I’m currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the premiere Social Media Lab in Canada, at Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario. I obtained a Health Policy PhD from McMaster University, MSc in Public Health Policy and Management from National Taiwan University, and a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (summa cum laude). Additional qualifications include: Global Health and STI/HIV prevention graduation certification from the Department of Global Health in the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. I am a Registered Nurse in the State of Washington since 2011 and Taiwan since 2008. I have worked for the Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan, CDC-Taiwan, and have volunteered in the US, Poland, and Thailand with organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the Hepatitis-C Outreach Program, King County Harm Reduction Program, Timmy Global Health, and Ban-Hom-Hug HIV/AIDS orphanage.

I freelance as an English-to-Chinese translator/interpreter for clients in medicine, nursing, neuroscience, and public health. I also work as a singer/songwriter in my free time, my songs were frequently featured in commercials for companies like Häagen-Dazs, Taiwan High Speed Rail, BenQ, Watsons, Toyota, Nissan, Levis, and many beverage and apparel companies. Thanks for visiting!
