Zuyi Fang is a Swire Scholar, studying for a DPhil in Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation, supervised by Professor Jane Barlow and Dr. Jamie Lachman. She previously completed an MPhil in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation at DSPI. Before coming to Oxford, she obtained a MSW from Columbia University and practiced as a social worker, providing clinical services for families of children with complex behavioral and mental health needs.
Zuyi's research centers around the nature of and strategies to prevent child physical abuse in low- and middle-income countries. Particularly, she is interested in the development, evaluation, and dissemination of parenting interventions/parent training for families of children with developmental disabilities (e.g. Autism, ADHD, and Epilepsy). Her research at DSPI involves a systematic review on this topic and an evaluation of a parent training program for families of children with Autism in mainland China.
