Sentence Structure : English

Can you please tell me if this is a simple, compound, complex or compound-complex sentence. And can you please tell me why it is the one it is like if it's because there are two dependent clauses or whatever the case may be. The sentence is : Zhang Jie wrote in China after the cultural revolution ended. Thank you!!!!

Zhang Jie wrote in China after the cultural revolution ended.

I've underlined the main clause and made the subordinate (dependent) clause in bold.

It's a complex sentence.
