Biping Gong’s undergraduate study was in Hubei Automobile Institute, China, from 1980-1984. His Master’s degree in gravitational physics was received in Zhongshan University in 1992. He got his Ph.D. in astrophysics in Hongkong University in 2001. From 2001-2005 he worked as a post doctor  of Astronomy department of Nanjing University.  Later he visited CESR of France 2005-2006. He become a staff member of Huazhong University of Science & Technology, Wuhan, China in 2006.  In the past 10 years he has started a series of research programs in mechanism  of Pulsar timing noise and in the   superluminal motion of AGNs and X-ray binaries, which has been supported by  three NSFC funding and one oversea funding. Biping Gong also actively cooperates with the researchers from MPIfRA and Manchester University .
