He was one of China’s most famous Paleolithic archaeologist, paleoanthropologist, quaternary geologist, Chinese Academy of Sciences Senior Fellow, foreign academician of the National Academy of Sciences and member of the Third World Academy. He discussed about two main microlithic traditions and proposed theoretical questions on the microlithic origin and distribution.

It was even supported by American archaeologists, as American scholars believed that that he played a role in guiding North American archeology.
