I am Haiyan and am relatively new to the BCS Community Board.

I am Chinese and moved to England in my GCSE years. I have always wanted to be involved in BCS work and have been involved in a number of committees throughout the years, including:

  1. BCS Membership Board Best Practice Committee - committee member
  2. BCS Young Professional Group (YPG) - Chair
  3. BCS Council - Council member
  4. BCS West London Branch - Secretary and Membership Secretary

I feel well supported by colleagues within and associated to BCS.

I am based in London and have been working in Epidemiology and Public Health in academic / research institutions and government department for a number of years. Having managed a national disease specific register, I have now moved on to a role which is responsible for facilitating access to health and social care data assets and providing a systematic, consistent and coherent approach to the review of requests for information to support the provision of health and social care or the promotion of health in ensuring that there is a legal and legitimate purpose for processing personal confidential data and that any risk of disclosure is minimised.

My main objective in the BCS Community Board and the Council is to promote work surrounding the Young Professionals Group (YPG).
