I received my BSc degree in Computer Science from the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) in China in 1986. I obtained my PhD degree in Computer Science in 1992 from the same university.

I worked in industry from 1992 to 1996, while I was a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) during the same time period. Then I worked in the School of Computing & Information Technology at Griffith University as a Research Fellow from 1996 to 1998.

My main interests are parallel/distributed computing, multi-core systems, green computing, cluster/grid/cloud computing, operating systems, wireless sensor networks, parallel algorithms, high-performance computing, virtualization, computer architectures, and computer networks. I had also done research on the ATM network and its applications, parallel logic programming, and neural networks.
