A computer scientist, he was formerly at IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, where he was a Research Staff Member (RSM) and Program Manager of Application Architectures and Realization. He led the R&D of the custom solution engagement cloud. He was also the worldwide leader of IBM's SOMA Modeling Environment (SOMA-ME), which has been successfully used in multi-billion-dollar projects. He also co-led IBM SOA Solution Stack, which has been adopted by The Open Group as the foundation for its SOA Reference Architecture standard. Currently, he is Senior Vice President, Chief Scientist, & Director of Research at Kingdee International Software Group Company Limited, and Director of The Open Group. He received his Ph.D. on Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Control from Tsinghua University in 1996. He joined IBM China Research Lab as a Staff Research Member in 1996. He then joined Polytechnical University as a postdoctoral scientist (May 1997-March 1998) before joining the IBM Thomas .J. Watson Research Center in March 1998. He chaired the Services Computing Professional Interest Community at IBM Research from 2004 to 2006. He also chaired the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing from 2005 to 2008. He was the lead IBM researcher on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) solutions, web services, and interactive media systems. More specifically, he was the designer of HyperChain Framework and a lead architect for the IBM HotVideo HyperVideo technology (which won the CNET/PC Expo's "Best of Show Software Award" in 2000.) HyperVideo is a displayed video stream that contains embedded, user-clickable anchors, allowing navigation between video and other hypermedia elements. It combines video with a nonlinear information structure, allowing a user to make choices based on the content of the video and the user's interests. He has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Web Services Research since 2003 and is the founding Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Services Computing. He was elected as a Fellow of the IEEE in 2011, and in the same year won the IEEE Technical Achievement Award "for pioneering contributions to Application Design Techniques in Services Computing". He is co-author of PL/M Program Design Skills & Examples For Intel Micro-controller, with Sheng Lin and Cun-Kui Fan, Science Press (China Academy Of Science), ISBN 7-03-004736-2, 1996. He is editor of five published books of IEEE and other major conference proceedings on web services, the most recent being: with Mario Jeckle (ed.), Web Services, Proceedings of the 2004 European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS 2004), Sept. 28-29, 2004, Erfurt, Germany, Springer; and with Minglu Li, Amit P. Sheth, and Keith G Jeffery, Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2004), IEEE Computer Society Press, 2004. He is also the author of 74 book chapters and other technical papers. He holds over 40 patents and has more than 20 pending patents. His tutorial on Grid computing applications has been widely cited.
