|He obtained his PhD, MSc, and BSc degrees from Xi’an Jiaotong University, The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), and Anhui Educational Institute, P. R. China, in 1997, 1992 and 1989, respectively. He joined the School of Electric and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore, in Jan 1998, as a Postdoctoral Fellow. Two years late, he moved to the School of Materials Science and Engineering, NTU, as a Research Fellow. He joined the Temasek Laboratories, National University of Singapore (TL@NUS), as a Research Scientist, in Apr. 2002. He was promoted to be Senior Research Scientist in 2009. He was head of the Advanced Materials Group during his service in TL@NUS. He joined the School of Materials and Engineering, NTU, as an Associate Professor, in Feb. 2012. His research interests include processing and characterization of functional ceramics, electromagnetic composite materials and advanced nanomaterials.|
