I worked at College of Shipbuilding Engineering, Harbin Engineering University (HEU) as a naval architect and lecturer between 2005 and 2011. During that period, my research & work mainly focused on ship design and optimizations. After receiving my PhD in subject of 'Design and Construction of Naval Architecture and Ocean Structure' from HEU in 2011, I decided to take a new challenge to do something in fluid mechanics (what I am really interested) at School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering, City, University of London. Between 2011 and 2014, my research mainly focused on numerical simulations of multi-phase flow and heat transfer. In 2014, I joint Newcastle University as a teaching fellow. My current research is focusing on oil & gas transportation in subsea pipeline-riser systems.

Currently, my research is focusing on the investigations of oil & gas transportation in subsea pipeline systems, aiming to provide the most reliable predictions of multi-phase flow features for subsea products transportation. Such research is significant for fatigue estimation and risk assessment of subsea pipeline systems.
