Outcomes from his research include: demonstrating pertussis vaccine is only moderately effective in older adults despite being widely recommended (Liu et al. Clin Infect Dis 2020), assessing the reduction of liver cancer among young adults globally is mainly due to hepatitis B vaccination (Li et al. Liver International 2021), identifying antibiotics are inappropriate prescribed for acute gastroenteritis (He et al. Microb Drug Resist; He et al. Emerging Infect Dis 2021).
