About Me
No About Me information available.

In 1983, I received my BSc (Mechanical Engineering) with honours from the Northeastern University, China and was one of the Ten-Best Graduate Students that year. In 1985, I obtained my Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the same university.

In 1986, I began my career as an associate lecturer in the University of Science and Technology Beijing, China. In 1988, I was promoted as a lecturer and then as an A/Professor in 1995. I continued to work in that university until I came to Australia in 1998.

In 1998. I obtained a PhD scholarship from Central Queensland University (CQU) and came to Australia. In 2002, I completed my PhD research in Mechanical Engineering at the Centre for Railway Engineering (CRE). From July 2002 to January 2012, I worked at the CRE as a senior research officer with a yearly fixed-term appointment. In 2012, my employment was changed to Research-Contingent Continuing as a lecturer at the School of Engineering and Technology.
