Profile Summary

Chao Wang is currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts,, University of Kent, UK. His research interests lie in the fields of microwave photonics, ultrafast imaging, optical sensing and biophotonics for biomedical and defense applications.

Prior to joining Kent, Chao was a NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Photonics Lab at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA. He received his BEng degree in Opto-electronic Engineering from Tianjin University,China, in 2002, his MASc degree in Optics from Nankai University, China, in 2005 and his PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Ottawa, Canada, in 2011.

He has been granted several international and regional awards, including SPIE Scholarship in Optical Science and Engineering (2008), Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (2009), Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad (2009), IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Fellowship (2009), IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society Graduate Fellowship (2010), NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship (2011) and Marie Curie Career Integration Grant Award (2014).

He has published more than 80 journal articles and conference papers (including several invited papers and three Best Paper Awards). He is a member of IEEE, OSA and SPIE. He also serves as an active reviewer of many leading photonics journals of OSA, IEEE, AIP, IET, Elsevier and Wiley.
