Professional Experience

I received my Ph.D. degree in Analytical Chemistry from Wuhan University (China) and thereafter worked in Prof. Lu’s group in the College of Life Science as apostdoctoral fellow innovating measurement approaches for plant hormones regulation. In 2004, I continued my postdoctoral research in York University (Canada) focusing on biomolecular interactions and further visited the Institute for Biological Sciences, National Research Council of Canada from 2005-2008. I has joined Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China) as a professor since 2008. I am the author of over 80 papers and reviews, including PNAS, Anal Chem, Chem Commun and Proteomics, with more than 1000 citations in total. My research interest focuses on mass spectrometry-based glycoproteomics and glycomics.
