   His research interests are with  natural product chemistry, and the application of NMR techniques to structure problems. He has rich experiences in structure elucidation of natural products and has determined 6,000 secondary metabolites (including 800 new natural products) originated from hundreds of medicinal plants, macrofungi, and microorganisms so far. In addition, he also revised a dozen of incorrect structures.

   He has chaired several research projects, including "Large-scale Compound Library" project of National Development and Reform Commission of China (2012~2016), "Western Light" talents training program of Chinese Academy of Sciences (2010~2014), and the science foundation from State Key Laboratory of Drug Research of China (No. SIMM0812KF-03). He was awarded the first class "Natural Sciences Prizes of Yunnan Province" as the second contributor in 2007.

   Until now, he has authored or coauthored more than 60 peer-reviewed articles in the international journals, such as Org LettJ Nat Prod, Phytochemistry, Fitoterapia, etc. He has also been invited to serve as a reviewer for several academic journals (Fitoterapia, Chem Biodivers, Chem Pharm Bull, Phytochem Lett, Nat Prod Bioprospect, Nat Prod Res, J Asian Nat Prod Res, etc) and an e-book “Studies in Natural Products Chemistry”.
