He won four research grants. One of the grants was supported by the Natural Science Foundation of China (equivalent to the Australian Research Council, ARC), and three postdoctoral grants from the Ministry of Education of China or Postdoc office of ZJ Province.

I am a specialist in meta-analysis data science and research synthesis. I am is good at advanced meta-analytic techniques, such as multilevel meta-analysis, multivariate meta-analysis, meta-analysis of variation, meta-analysis of magnitude, meta-analysis of interaction, and second-order meta-analysis. I am also interested in developing advanced meta-analytic techniques in collaboration with Prof. Shinichi Nakagawa.
