When he was a staff of China Agricultural University in 1985-2003, besides teaching obligations in seed sciences, he did research on seed vigour and aerobic rice breeding. During his PhD program in 2002-2006, he worked on competition between weeds and aerobic rice genotypes, and developed selection index for weed competitiveness. In 2006-2010, he worked at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) as a postdoc on aerobic and rainfed lowland rice breeding, and dissemination of water-saving rice technologies to South Asian countries. In 2010-2016, He was a scientist/breeder  based in IRRI-Cambodia Office, leading a rice breeding project targeting at all rice ecologies in Cambodia, and another project focusing more on seed dissemination of climate resilient rice varieties to smallholder farmers.
