Biography

Dr. Tao 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 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). He has years of research experience in optical sciences and engineering in academia, industry, and government institutes with expertise in the areas of infrared material, infrared fiber, in-fiber nano-fabrication, and advanced functional fibers and textiles. He has also been the organizer/session chair of multiple international conferences. Dr. Tao is also the cofounder of Lambda Photonics LLC, a startup company which developed out of his Ph.D. work.
