I am currently an Associate Professor in Computer and Information Sciences at Northumbria. Prior to this I have been an Associate Professor at Tongji University leading the Complex Network group in School of Mathematical Sciences for four years. Before this I held various postdoctoral appointments with Institute for Cyber Security and Department of Computer Science at University of Texas at San Antonio, SUTD-MIT International Design Centre at Singapore University of Technology and Design, and Einstein Institute of Mathematics at Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 2017, I visited Department of Mathematical Sciences at University of Essex as a short stay Essex International Visiting Fellow. I received my PhD degree in Applied Mathematics in 2010 and BSc degree in Mathematics in 2005, both from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
