I received the BEng and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering from Southwest Jiaotong University, China, in 1982 and 1985, respectively. I did research on coding for digital communication systems at the University of Manchester, and was awarded the PhD degree in 1995.

From 1985 to 1990, I was Lecturer and Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Southwest Jiaotong University. I worked as Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Manchester during 1995-1997, and as Research Fellow at the University of York, during 1997-1998. I joined South Bank University, London, working in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering as Lecturer and Senior Lecturer between 1998 and 2001. In 2001 I was with Roke Manor Research, Romsey, working as Consultant Engineer before joining Aston University, Birmingham, in 2002, where I am currently Senior Lecturer with the Electrical, Electronic and Power Engineering Subject Group in the School of Engineering & Applied Science. My research interests include error control coding, wireless communications & networking, and distributed networks.
