BIO
Since 2017, I am a Full Professor in School of Physics Science and Engineering, Tongji University, Shanghai, China. I received my B.Sc. and Ph.D. degree at University of Science and Technology of China in 2005 and 2010 respectively. During 2007-09, I was a visiting PhD student in the Centre for Chaos and Complex Networks at City University of Hong Kong. Prior to joining Tongji, I was research scientist in the Temasek Laboratories at National University of Singapore, Singapore; and postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Complex Network Research at Northeastern University, Boston, USA. I am a recipient of the Thousand Youth Talents Plan (2016).
