I was born in a riverside town and grew up in a mountainside town in Sichuan of China. After my college study at the SWJTU, I worked in a basic unit for the railroad transportation department of a massive heavy-industry plant in the Chengdu city. In 1995 I was admitted to the Master of Management Science degree program in the School of Economics and Management at the SWJTU, with the concentration on Urban Systems Engineering. In 1998, I was recruited into the teaching faculty in the School of Transportation and Logistics (STL) at the SWJTU.
In 2001, I went to the United States to further my higher education in the Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering at the University of Florida (UF) where I obtained the Master degree in Transportation Engineering. In 2008, I earned the Ph.D. in Transportation Engineering, with Statistics minor, from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison, then I worked as a Research Associate in a research lab at the university. In 2010, I was employed as a key Research Analyst in the University of Vermont (UVM) Transportation Research Center, one of ten national centers in the University Transportation Center Program of United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). In 2012, I joined as a Research Fellow the Sustainable Mobility and Accessibility Research and Transformation (SMART) Program of the Transportation Research Institute in the University of Michigan (U-M). In 2014, I joined the Institute for Transportation Research & Education (ITRE) of the North Carolina State University (NCSU) as a Research Scholar. As the lead and corresponding author, I have published a series of academic papers for international peer-review journals & conferences. One innovative work I led won me a "Best Paper Award" reception, a "Patricia Waller Award" nomination and a nationwide webinar presentation granted by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) in the National Research Council of National Academies of the United States. I have been a member on an editorial board and the invited reviewer for international peer-review journals: Safety Research, Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, Transportation Research Record, Accident Analysis and Prevention, Advanced Transportation, etc.
In November 2014, I came back to Sichuan and started to work with people for the STL again at the SWJTU.
