Brief History I received B.Sc degree in statistics from Peking University in 1990, M.Sc degree from Qufu Normal University in 1993 and Ph. D from Institute of Applied Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1996, both in operational research and optimal control. I have been a postdoctoral fellow at State Key Laboratory of Scientific and Engineering Computing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and University of New South Wales. My research had been mainly supported by Australian Research Council (ARC) (2000-2004). In 2004, I was awarded by ARC a Queen Elizabeth II fellowship (QEII fellow). Since September 2004, I moved to University of Southampton to take up a lectureship in Operational Research. Senior lecturer and Associate Professor (2010--2016), Professor and Chair (2017--).
