1、 Personal profile
He is responsible for teaching the courses of Paleontology and stratigraphy, foreign languages for geology and principles of advanced paleontology for postgraduates. He won the first prize in the teaching competition for young teachers of Northwest University and the second prize in the science group of the teaching competition for young teachers of Shaanxi Province
At present, he is mainly engaged in the field of early life evolution, focusing on the world's major specially buried soft body fossil biota in the Cambrian period 500 million years ago. Breaking through the research limitations of traditional paleontology, combining with various research methods and latest research results of modern biology, especially in the frontier fields of molecular biology, development and evolutionary biology, this paper makes a more in-depth study on the systematic biology, development, nerve, embryo, evolutionary relationship and ecology of fossil biota.

3. Academic conferences and exchanges
Relying on the first-class geology discipline of Northwest University, the State Key Laboratory of continental dynamics and the Key Laboratory of early life and environment of Shaanxi Province, in recent years, international exchanges and cooperation in the field of early life research have been widely carried out. At present, it has maintained close cooperation with experts and scholars in relevant fields of internationally renowned universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard University, etc. In August 2018, he served as the Secretary General of the international scientific conference of the Ediacaran and Cambrian Systems jointly sponsored by the international stratigraphic Committee Ediacaran branch and Cambrian branch, and successfully organized an international conference of 197 representatives (84 foreign representatives) from 15 countries, including 4 field trips. In September 2017, he served as the chairman and hosted the "Cambrian arthropod international seminar". Lead students to the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, Africa, Asian countries to participate in international projects, conferences and field trips. The team made nearly 30 oral reports, and one person won the "national excellent graduate Award".
