Charles joined the China Kadoorie Biobank research unit as a DPhil student in October 2023. Under the supervision of Professors Huaidong Du, Iona Millwood, and Derrick Bennett, his research examines risk factors and potential therapeutic targets for glaucoma and other eye diseases using biological and epidemiological data from prospective biobank studies.

Charles earned a BA (Hons) in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California, Berkeley. There, he had the opportunity to contribute to an international research collaboration on optimizing infectious disease surveillance networks that was led by the UC Berkeley School of Public Health and the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC), where he was hosted for three summers as a visiting researcher in Chengdu, Sichuan.

Afterwards, Charles joined the data science and analytics team of the American Academy of Ophthalmology to conduct observational studies on key topics in ophthalmology and eye care using a multimillion-patient national ocular disease registry.
