Academic Appointments

  • Member, ESH Working Group on Blood Pressure Monitoring and Cardiovascular Variability, since 2019


Dr. Lee completed his medical education and graduated from the University of Hong Kong in 2007. He practiced family medicine in Hong Kong for over 10 years and obtained his specialist qualification in 2016. In 2014, he earned a master's degree in mental health from CUHK, followed by another master's degree in Evidence-Based Health Care from the University of Oxford in 2020. 


Currently, Dr. Lee holds the position of clinical assistant professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Throughout his career, he has conducted cross-sectional studies, randomized controlled trials, and meta-analyses to investigate various methods of blood pressure measurement and treatments for nocturnal hypertension. His research findings have been incorporated into international guidelines. Additionally, Dr. Lee is an active member of the European Society of Hypertension Working Group on Blood Pressure Monitoring and Cardiovascular Variability.
