Dr. Qiaoliang Bao received his Bachelor (2000) and Master (2003) degree from School of Materials Science and Engineering, Wuhan University of Technology, and Ph. D degree from Department of Physics, Wuhan University (2007). From 2006 to 2008, he studied at Nanyang Technological University as a visiting student and research associate. From 2008 to 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Graphene Research Centre, National University of Singapore (NUS). He was enrolled into China Thousand Youth Talent Program in 2012. He obtained ARC Future Fellowship in 2016 and is now a tenured Associate Professor at Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Monash University, Australia. He is one of the 20 lead Chief Investigators of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technology (ARC COE FLEET). He is also one of Chief Investigators in ARC Industry Transformation Hub for Nanoscience based Construction Material Manufacturing. He has authored or co-authored more than 190 refereed journal articles with more than 20,000 total citations and an H-index of 60 (Google Scholar). Dr. Bao has >30 highly cited publications according to the latest data in Web of Science, and he is listed as 2018 Highly Cited (HiCi) researcher by Clarivate Analytics. His research involves the investigation of waveguide-coupled 2D semiconductors and polariton-coupled 2D materials and devices, focusing on the effect of confined-space light-matter interactions on the transport of electrons or other quasi-particles such as plasmon polariton, exciton polarition and phonon polariton.
