About Dr Yu Sun Bin

Yu Sun Bin is an epidemiologist and public health researcher. Dr Bin’s research interests are on sleep and circadian rhythms and how these biological systems contribute to public health and disease.

Dr Bin's content expertise is on sleep as a lifestyle risk factor and the impact of disordered sleep on public health. Dr Bin’s methodological expertise is in the analysis of large complex datasets including linked administrative health and education datasets, cohort studies, and population surveys from around the world.

Sleep is an essential part of daily life, yet often neglected in public health and prevention efforts. My research aims to understand the contribution of sleep and circadian rhythms to public health, to prevent the development of chronic disease.
