Personal page of Jing Hua Zhao

I have been a scientist at the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit, MRC Epidemiology Unit, following positions at University College London (2002-5), King's College London (1996-2002), Harvard University (1994-6) and Ministry of Health, China (1988-94). I have a PhD in Genetics (2004, King's College London), master's (1988, Fudan University) and bachelor's (1985, Shandong University) degrees in Medicine. I am Fushan No 1 Middle School and Dong Huang Shan Primary School alumni.

My field is statistics, epidemiology and public heatlth with recent work on design and analysis for Whitehall II, ELSA, EPIC-Norfolk, Fenland, InterAct, NSHD and Framingham. The EPIC-Norfolk genomewide association study contributed to GIANT, CHARGE and many other consortia and therefore myself as a highly cited researcher. I am a member of the Royal Statistical Society and here are my biosketch and ResearchGate profile. I finished my term as associate editor for The Scientific World Journal in July 2017 and I am currently a review editor for Frontiers in Genetics (blog network and profile).

I promoted reproducible research through software development and presentations at useR!2007 useR!2008, useR!2009, useR!2010, useR!2011, Henry-Stewart and local talks as with earlier collections. I created Omics resources, MRC, UCL and KCL (with comments and a diagram) bookmarks. I have moved most of my software here to GitHub along with CRAN. I would appreciate if you e-mail me your comments or information on citations.
