Curriculum Vitae

Breif History

I received my Ph.D. degree in 2007 from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Then I came to University of New South Wales to act as a research fellow. I became a university lecturer in the department of applied mathematics at University of New South Wales from Jan. 2011.

I was awarded an ARC Future Fellowship from Australian Research Council in Nov. 2013. Currently, I am an Australian Research Council Future Fellow and a Senior Lecturer at University of New South Wales.
