  • BSc in Accounting and Finance in Hunan University in China from 2005 to 2009;
  • MSc in Business Administration towards the direction of government auditing in Hunan University in China from 2009 to 2011;
  • Since September 2011 as a PhD Student in Professor Stefan Kuhlmann’s project on ‘Research Evaluation Mechanism of Publicly Funded Non-University Research Organizations’.


The PhD research is around “Research Evaluation Mechanism in National Key Publicly Funded Non-university Research Institutions ---The Cases of German Max Planck Society (MPG), the Helmholtz Association (HGF) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS)”. This research is within the "Talents-Training China" programme organized by The Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) and sponsored by Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC).

Publicly funded non-university research institutions are significant academic contributors to maintain national innovation systems. They are also expected to guarantee excellent research and provide scientific evidence for national policy-making. With these missions, their interim evaluation mechanisms designed at the three levels L1: central supervisory body, L2: specific institutes, L3: individual researchers are expected to reflect internal and external stakeholders with potential conflicts and communication efforts. The evaluation mechanism and their implementation process have the “balancing” functions at L1 between internal governance and external justification for various stakeholders (government, scientific community, university, enterprises, public), at L2 between following organizational strategy and maintaining research autonomy, and at L3 between promoting young researchers and give them freedom and independence. Here, the evaluation information and services might help to communicate, negotiate and mitigate potential tensions in cases of diverging interests in evaluation at the three levels. The relationship between organizational strategy and institute evaluation will be explored empirically through the cases study of the German Max Planck Society (MPG), the Helmholtz Association (HGF) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). A comparative analysis will give insights into existing challenges and future prospects by reviewing the dynamics of the evaluation experiences in the past fifteen years and analyzing the current institutionalization of evaluation.
