Academic position: Editorial board member of 'Physics of Gas', and member of AIAA, APS and EUROMECH.

Academic achievement: Main contributions:
1. Developed local scattering theory, to describe the receptivity, local scattering and acoustic radiation in boundary-layer flows;
2. Pointed out the non-physical behaviours of the currently widely-used model on describing the entrainment of freestream vortical disturbances in boundary layers, and developed a correct solution based on large-Reynolds-number asymptotic theory;
3. Complete the description of bypass-transition mechanism, including those induced by both high-level freestream turbulence in incompressible regime and large roughness in hypersonic regime.
