I am Professor in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I completed my Ph.D. (with distinction) in algebraic graph theory at the University of Western Australia in 2000. Since then I have been working in the current school as a Research Fellow, ARC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, A/Professor and Reader, and Professor. From 2012 to 2015 I was a Future Fellow supported by the Australian Research Council.
Prior to my career in Australia, I was a teaching and research staff member at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China for several years after receiving an MSc degree from Zhengzhou University.
