Jianjun Xiang obtained his Bachelor Degree and Master Degree for 8-year systematic study from 1998 to 2006 in the Public Health School of Fujian Medical University in China. After graduation, he worked for four years as a public health physician in the Department of Emergency Preparedness & Response of Fujian Provincial Centre for Disease Control and Prevention in China, mainly undertaking field epidemiological investigation and infectious diseases surveillance data analysis. In 2014, he obtained his PhD from the School of Public Health, The University of Adelaide. He won several awards for his excellent research on exploring the impact of weather-related extreme heat exposure on workers' health and safety in South Australia, such as School Best PhD Thesis, Dean's Commendation, 2015 PHAA Kerry Kirke Award, and 2016 Eric Wigglesworth National OHS Education and Research Award. Currently, he is working on a NHMRC project as a postdoctoral research fellow, with aims to investigate the healthcare costs of extreme heat exposure in Australia.
