In August 1994, he was invited to join the Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan, under the support of Daiko Foundation. He obtained a fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) in August 1995. In April 1997, he joined the Tohoku National Industrial Research Institute (Japan), as a research officer. This institute was later reorganized to the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST, Japan), where he was promoted to a senior research scientist and served as an associate to the director of the International Affairs Division. He also worked at Drexel University, USA, in February 2004 for one year, on his sabbatical leave from AIST. He later joined the School of Materials Science and Engineering, Southeast University, and was appointed the dean of the school in 2019. His research interests cover the research and development of metallic materials, intermetallic compounds, ceramics and composites. In the past decade, he devoted most of his energy to the MAX phase materials, a family of ternary compounds, which combines the best attributes of metals and ceramics. Recently he is more engaged in the study of energy storage materials such as MXenes, the derivatives of MAX phases, for Li-ion batteries, super capacitors, Li-S batteries, Zn-ion batteries. He has published more than 300 research papers in journals such as Nat. Commun., Adv Mater, Adv Energy Mater, Energy Environ Sci, Adv Funct Mater, Acta Mater, and holds more than 40 patents. He serves as a director of the Chinese Materials Research Society, executive director of the Chinese Society for Composite Materials, vice president of the Jiangsu Materials Research Society. He has received awards such as the Overseas Chinese Contribution Award, Jiangsu Province Science and Technology Award, and the Scientific and Technological Award of the Composite Materials Society.
