Christina Yida Hu

Christina is Head of Product at the ZOE COVID Study – a not-for-profit tech startup that has been central to the scientific fight against COVID-19.

Over the past 18 months, over 4.7 million people across the UK, US and Sweden have used the app and contributed their data to COVID-19 science. Today, close to 1 million people are weekly active users – making it one of the most used healthtech apps in Europe. As part of her role, Christina sets the KPIs and strategy, decides what app features to build, raises funding, and leads collaborations with external organisations and academic institutions such as King’s College London.

Prior to the ZOE COVID Study, Christina was an AI Product Manager for Babylon Health (a unicorn-status start-up combining AI with human doctors) where she found the user and business problems that can and should be solved by AI, and worked closely with engineers, AI researchers, designers and doctors to solve them.

Christina came to Product Management after 4 years in Strategy Consulting at Ernst & Young. Before that, she graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in Natural Sciences.
