Chunguang visited the Australian Museum for six months in 1997-8, arriving on 27 July 1997 and departing in late January 1998.  During this time he sequenced tissues from whalefishes and relatives.  His work culminated in publication of the following paper.

Colgan, D.C., Zhang, C.-G. & J.R. Paxton. 2000. Phylogenetic investigations of the Stephanoberyciformes and Beryciformes, particularly whalefishes (Euteleostei: Cetomimidae), based on partial 12S rDNA and 16S rDNA sequences. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution. 17(1): 15-25.

Chunguang currently works on Chinese cave fishes at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.
