He got master degree at the Fourth Military Medical University in 1988. He proposed a novel method for evaluating diagnostic tests, named odds products method in 1988, which is widely known as diagnostic odds ratio proposed independently by Glas etc. in 2003. He and his students have improved the inference approaches for Youden index recently. 

His methodology involves a wide range of fields such as meta analysis, sample size estimation, diagnostic accuracy, scale development. He has also worked on a lot of statistical consulting including clinical trial, patient satisfactory survey, observational study of both hospital and general population and so on.
