I am a Reader and ARC Future Fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I obtained my Ph.D. (with distinction) in algebraic graph theory from the University of Western Australia. Since then I have been working in the current department as a Research Fellow, ARC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and A/Professor and Reader.
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.
