My major contribution includes the theory of the robustness of networks of networks and resilience of complex networks. Since 2010, I have published over 80 papers in journals, such as Nature, Nature Physics, Nature Communications, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Physical Review Letters and more, with over 6,000 citations on Google Scholar. I have been selected as the Editor board of Nature Scientific Reports, distinguished referee of EPL (2014-2016) and Elsevier (2016), and referee of Science, PNAS, PRL, PRX and more. His publications were reported over 40 times by international public and professional media.

Prior to joining the Department of Computer Science at RPI, I was a Research Assistant Professor at the Center for Complex Network Research at Northeastern University from 2012, working with Prof. Albert-László Barabási. I got my Ph. D. degree in the Department of Automation at Shanghai Jiao Tong University from 2008 to 2012. During my Ph.D. from 2009 to 2012, I visited Prof. H. Eugene.
