Please tell our reader about yourself.

I was born in Shandong Province, China, near the city where Confucius was born. I finished a degree in Marine Geology from the Tongji University, a German-established higher education institution in Shanghai.

My first job was with China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), where I worked for 10 years. I was part of the team that discovered the biggest oil deposit in Bohai Bay in China. In 1996, I left CNOOC to pursue further studies on petroleum engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Norway. I migrated to Canada to pursue my dreams on exploring new frontiers. My wife is also an accomplished professional with a PhD in engineering who worked for the several super-majors and who was a part of the review committee for the Journal of SPE in Reservoir Engineering. We are blessed with two sons, the elder one is a lawyer and the other is still in school.
