His pioneering research in discovery of fault-zone trapped waves, and fault co-seismic damage and post-mainshock heal have been recognized by geoscientists world-wildly. He is a leader author of four innovative papers published on prestigious scientific journals<< Science>> and <<Nature>>, and ~100 scientific articles. He has edited five professional books published by China Higher Education Press joined with De Gruyter and Springer. He has been awarded as an Honorary Professor in China Academy of Geological Science, and Special Guest Professor at Fudan University, Ningbo Nottingham University, Duke University and University of Auckland.
