He earned his medical degree from the University of First Military Medical and then completed a residency in internal medicine and nephrology in Zhujiang Hospital at Guangdong Province. He also has a master of advanced studies degree in nephrology in First Military Medical University and Beijing University.
He has been responsible for the pathological diagnosis of renal biopsy for a long time. So far, more than 10,000 cases of renal biopsy have been independently diagnosed by him. He has organized or co-organized lots of national continuing education courses on renal pathology. He is the core commentator of the Guangdong Provincial Clinical Pathology Seminar and the organizer of the tele pathology workshop of Nanfang-Harvard University. Through long-term clinical and pathological practice, he has a profound understanding of the pathogenesis of frequent renal diseases, including IgA nephropathy, membranous nephropathy, and diabetic nephropathy. He has been invited to give special lectures many times in PLA, Guangdong province and the nationwide academic conference on Kidney Disease. 

He has published more than 30 papers, edited 3 audio-visual teaching materials, participated in the compilation of 4 monographs, and won a second-class prize in the technological progress of military scientific awards. He recently participated in the national multi-center epidemiological survey based on pathological diagnosis of renal biopsy conducted by academician Fanfan Hou and was responsible for setting up a database of more than 100000 cases of clinical pathology.
