Dr Wu, Peng 吳蓬
Dr Wu was originally trained as a medical doctor in China and later graduated with a PhD from the School of Public Health of the University of Hong Kong. Dr Wu has been working on research projects of infectious diseases caused by influenza and other common respiratory viruses, hand-foot-mouth diseases, and tuberculosis.
Dr Wu's research interests are applying statistical modeling approaches to investigate epidemiological characteristics, transmission dynamics and public health impact of respiratory infectious diseases. Currently her research mainly focuses on measuring disease burden attributable to infections with influenza and other respiratory viruses, investigating population responses to the newly emerged influenza A(H7N9) virus and the impact on transmission of the virus in humans, disease burden associated with hand-foot mouth diseases particularly enterovirus serotype 71, the epidemiological effect of pharmaceutical interventions on the transmission of tuberculosis in Hong Kong.
