Project Manager, East of England Population Health Research Hub (EoE PHResh)

Sharon's journey is marked by a diverse interdisciplinary background and a commitment to fostering positive change in life and the environment. In her previous role, she had the privilege of serving as the pro-bono Chief of Staff for a UK-based NGO, where she advocated for the implementation of innovative technologies to support climate action.   Currently, Sharon is humbled to play a key role in facilitating collaboration to provide evidence which informs health and social care delivery, improve regional population health and reduces health inequalities.

Prior to her tenure in the UK, Sharon spearheaded two charitable foundations in Hong Kong, where she connected, supported, and empowered emerging leaders, academics, and organizations to spearhead impactful initiatives aimed at nurturing sustainable futures. With over 15 years of experience, Sharon has worked closely with universities, government bodies, NGOs, and local communities, championing various sustainable building projects in both rural and humanitarian settings. Some of her engaged projects have earned international acclaim for their innovative approaches to green design, cultural preservation, regional significance, and social impact. She was humbled to serve as a panel speaker at the Asia-Pacific Housing Forum in 2017 and was a member of the International Scientific Review Panel at the World Sustainable Building Environment Conference the same year.

Academically, Sharon holds a BSSc (Hons) in Economics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and an MSc in Environmental Management from the University of Hong Kong (HKU). She is an alumna of the Cambridge Institute of Sustainability Leadership, with specializations in Business Sustainability Management and Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment. Additionally, she serves as an adjunct tutor at the Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response. Currently pursuing her PhD in Public Health, Sharon's research focuses on harnessing affordable and locally appropriate housing solutions as climate adaptation measures to improve health and wellness for vulnerable communities.
