She had previously obtained Master’s and PhD degrees in nursing science from Taipei Medical University, Taiwan. Her work experience spans from core nursing clinical practice, where she held a deputy in charge of the maternity department position in Malawi for four years, to managing research projects in medical education at Chang Gung Medical Education Research Centre, Taiwan. Recently, she worked at I-TECH on a project that sought to evaluate two-way texting (2wT) as an effective follow-up intervention for males after voluntary circumcision.
