Jing Song, PhD


Postdoctoral Research Assistant



I joined the Research & Action on Salt and Obesity Unit, Centre for Public Health and Policy, as a postdoctoral researcher since 2019. Before that, I got my PhD degree in epidemiology and biostatistics from Peking University. I’m currently working on several projects evaluating the effectiveness and health impact of nutrition policies and interventions to modify the suboptimal diet both inside and outside UK, especially the high salt intake and calorie consumption which are the leading modifiable risk factors for non-communicable diseases.


Research Interests:

My research interests mainly focus on the association between nutritional quality of diet and the burden of non-communicable disease and evaluating the effectiveness and impact of nutrition policies and interventions.
