Chris is a Biomedical Science student at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Chris aspires to devote himself to the betterment of the public health sector advancing medication and treatment for diseases.

To gain practical knowledge in public health policy enforcement in Hong Kong, he took up a summer internship at the Infection Control Branch of the Department of Health of the HKSAR Government. During the internship, he participated in projects concerning current medical issues such as routine infection control in Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDRO), Surgical Site Infection and Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) in Hong Kong. The experience broadened his understanding of local public health management.

Chris also actively participates in research projects at the University. For instance, he has been a research assistant in the School of Public Health and Primary Care since September 2017. Throughout the year, he participated in two research projects including the promotion of strength training, prevention of sarcopenia to older people and the assessment of the effectiveness of Positive Psychology Intervention on improving mental health of university students. Apart from research experiences, Chris actively participates in social services as a member of CU Champion, which provides regular health checks for the elderly in local community centers. Through serving others, Chris is more determined to devote himself to the public health sector.
