He is the principle investigator of a recently funded EPSRC first grant project on Information-Centric Networking (EP/M013936/2). He is the co-investigator of two recently funded National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) projects on Cyber Security and Software-Defined Networking, respectively. He is also working on big data and network management technologies involving two industrial KTP projects.

He was the recipient of the best paper award at IEEE SOSE'16 and IUCC'14. He received the Outstanding Service Award and Outstanding Leadership Award for contributions to IEEE International conferences IEEE ICESS-10, ICESS-12, HPCC-12, and FCST-14. He has successfully supervised seven Master Students in the UK to graduate. He is currently supervising/co-supervising four PhD students. He served as an internal PhD thesis examiner in 2013. He is a member of IEEE and a Fellow of HEA (Higher Education Academy).
