Dr. Guo CF is now appointed as associate professor by department of Material Science and Engineering (MSE) of South University of Science and Technology of China (SUSTC). He received his bachelor degree on material science and engineering in Huazhong University of Science and Technology, 2006. In 2011, he was conferred the doctor's degree on condensed matter physics in National Center of Nanoscience and Technology, China (NCNST). From 2011 to 2013, Dr. Guo finished his postdoctoral fellow work in Boston College. In the years of 2013 to 2016, Dr. Guo worked in University of Houston as Research Associate. He joined SUSTC in 2016 spring. The research fields are mainly focused on flexible electronics, micro/nano fabrication, the growth and properties of nanomaterial, etc. Dr. Guo has published more than 60 articles on famous academic journals, including Nature Communications, PNAS, JACS, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters. He has applied 15 patents and acquired 10 granted invention patents in the countries of China, USA and Japan. He co-authored an academic monograph written in English. His research progress on flexible transparent electrodes has been widely reported by New York Times, Xinhua News Agency, Science Daily, Materials Today and Physics Today.
