I am now a Teaching Fellow (with a Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy awarded in August 2022) at Graduate School and Business School working with Dr Katerina Michalickova , Mrs Laura LaneDr Lara Cathcart, Prof. James Sefton, Prof. Alexander Michaelides, and Prof. Robert Kosowski .

Before being a member of Graduate school and the Department of Finance (Imperial College Business School), I was a Post-Doc researcher at the Department of Computing and worked with Prof. Daniel Rueckert in BioMedIA group. Earlier, I was a Research Associate (in Biostatistics) at the Department of Surgery and Cancer, working with Prof. Timothy Ebbels and Prof. Robert Glen .

Prior to my journey at Imperial College London, I was a Research Fellow in Sensors System Electronics at the University of Southampton, working with Prof. Liudi Jiang from 2014 to 2016. Earlier, I worked as a Senior Software Developer at IoT Tech Limited in Northern Ireland from 2013 to 2014.

I obtained PhD in Computing at Ulster University, an MSc in Information Technology from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, BSc in Computer Science from Fujian Normal University China.
