Bio: Dr. Tao is a Professor at the School of Optical and Electronic Information at Huazhong University of Science and Technology and National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (Wuhan, China). He received his B. Eng. (2006), M.Sc. (2009), and Ph.D. (2014) in optics/optoelectronic from Shandong University, Fudan University, and the University of Central Florida, respectively. He was a Research Scientist/Sr. Research Scientist at CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics from 2014 to 2017. He was a visiting scholar at Chinese Academy of Science (2007-2008), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2012), and Centre national de la recherche scientifique (2017). He has been awarded several scholarships/honors from Optical Society of America (OSA), the International Society of Optical Engineering (SPIE), and the American Ceramic Society (ACerS), the Extraordinary Potential Prize winner of Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad (2013) and “1000 Young Talents” Award (2017). Dr. Tao has published about 35 scientific papers, holds 7 U.S. and foreign patents, has given in excess of 45 invited lectures/colloquia or keynote talk, and has co-organized 6 national and international conferences and symposia. Dr. Tao is one of the technical committee members of “Wuhan•Fiber Valley”. He is serving as peer reviewer for more than 30 journals, including Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Optica, APL Photonics, Optics Express, Optics Letters, RSC Advances, Journal of the American Ceramic Society, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics etc. He has years of research experience in optical sciences and engineering in academia, industry, and government institutes with expertise in the areas of infrared fiber, in-fiber nano-fabrication, and advanced functional fibers and textiles. Dr. Tao is also the cofounder of Lambda Photonics LLC, a startup company which developed out of his Ph.D. work.
