Awards And Honors
1.  Presented a novel operation, the so called SPR operation, which can be used to improve mesh and recover geometry boundary after meshing.

2.  Presented the sphere-packing method for mesh generation in 1991, earlier than other researchers having the same idea.

3.  Developed a mesh generator which has about 300 users in China.
