Dr Yu-Tzu Wu

Research Associate


I joined King’s College London in 2018 as a Research Associate for the Ageing Trajectories of Health: Longitudinal Opportunities and Synergies (ATHLOS) project. My main task is to investigate trajectories of health in the ageing process and identify potential risk factors related to these trajectories. I am an epidemiologist with research interests in environment and ageing and have been working with several ageing cohorts in UK. I completed my PhD in Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Cambridge.
