Li Zhang

Statistician and HONORARY RESEARCH FELLOW (Non-Clinical)

My research primarily focuses on the analysis of data from randomised trials and cohort studies, including the Oxford Vascular Study (OxVasc), a population-based epidemiological study of all acute vascular events in a subpopulation of just under 100,000 Oxfordshire residents. The focus of the analyses of data from randomised trials will be on the effects of blood pressure-lowering drugs on the risks of stroke and cognitive decline and the effects of aspirin on the risks of cancer and other non-vascular conditions.

Before joining the University of Oxford, I completed my PhD in epidemiology at King's College London. My doctoral research focused on investigating long-term trends and risk prediction of stroke recurrence, employing the competing risk model with data from the South London Stroke Register (SLSR). Furthermore, I hold a Master of Public Health from Peking University (2019) and a bachelor's degree in Preventive Medicine (Health Laboratory Technology) from Chongqing Medical University (2016).
