He received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering and automation from South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China. During Mar. 2019 to Jun. 2019, he was invited as a visiting researcher in School of Physics: Structured Light Laboratory (Andrew Forbes group), University of the Witwatersrand (Wits University), Johannesburg, South Africa, and also invited as a visiting researcher in National Laser Centre, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Pretoria, South Africa. He is a member of the Chinese Optical Society (COS) and Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, and an invited member of the Optical Society of America (OSA), specially a fellow member in the Systems and Instrumentation Group in which. He won the Wang Da-Heng Optics Award (COS, China) in 2019. He is a national first-grade computer aided designer and cartographer in China. He is a senior reviewer of journals Opt. Lett., Opt. Express, IEEE Photon. J., J. Opt., etc., who especially won the IOP and OSA Outstanding Reviewer Awards in 2020. He is also a member in the Journal of Optics Advisory Panel. He has published more than 40 papers in high-impact journals including Light: Sci. & Appl., Optica, Phys. Rev. Appl., Phys. Rev. A, Opt. Lett., Opt. Express, with over hundreds of citations.
