is an expert in the field of Game Theory and is currently a Professor of Economics in the School of Public Finance and Taxation at the Zhejiang University of Finance and Economics (ZUFE). He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and has since then held positions in Singapore, Australia and China. He served as an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics (2019 – 2020), as an Associate Professor of Economics (2013 – 2019) and Faculty Director of Research (2014 – 2019) at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC). Prior to coming to China, he was an Assistant Professor of Economics and Statistics (2006 – 2013) at Bond University, Australia. He was awarded the Research Fellowship for International Young Scientist National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) on two occasions in 2016 and 2019.

He has recently been appointed Guest Editor of the journal Dynamic Games and Applications for the period 2023-2025 for a special issue on dynamic games of pursuit-evasion. He has served as a guest editor of the Annals of Dynamic Games in 2017-2020, is on the Board of Reviewers of Mathematical Reviews (American Mathematical Society) and has been a long serving member of the International Society of Dynamic Games (ISDG). In the past ten years, his research has focused on three areas related to game theory. The first is on is on a class of pursuit-evasion games on graphs, the second in on mechanisms that improve efficiency in voluntary contribution games both in theory and experiments while the third is on the representation of extensive games.
