Dr. Guangbo Hao earned his Bachelor Degree of Engineering, Master Degree of Engineering, and Doctor Degree of Engineering (first PhD) all from Northeastern University (NEU), China, in July 2004, March 2007 and July 2008, respectively. In September 2011, he was awarded Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (second PhD) in Mechanical Engineering after a subsequent three-year fully-funded studying at Heriot-Watt University (HWU), UK. His first PhD thesis was supervised by Prof. Liyang Xie at NEU studying reliability modeling of mechanical systems such as pipeline and wire cable. His second PhD thesis supervised by Dr. Xianwen Kong at HWU investigated design and modelling of the large-range translational compliant parallel manipulators using spatial compliant modules. With his excellent publication record and research track record, he was selected to directly join the School of Engineering-Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University College Cork (UCC), to take a permanent full-time Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering in November 2011. His current research focuses on compliant mechanisms and robotics for applications in precision engineering, MEMS and biomedical devices such as nano-positioners, motion/scanning stagers, comb-drivers, force/acceleration sensors, grippers, and injectors. His research works were indicated by 1 filed EU patent, over 60 publications and several invited talks, and by successfully securing a 110K Euro research fund as an independent PI. Dr. Hao has been a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) since 2009 and a committee member of Section Operation Executive Board of ASME UK & Ireland Section. He has been a selected member of Irish Manufacturing Council (IMC) since 2014, and is the co-chair of ASME IDETC 2015 compliant mechanisms symposium. He has been invited to review papers for several prestigious journals such as IEEE Transactions on Robotics, Mechanism and Machine Theory, Journal of Mechanical Design-Trans. ASME, and Precision Engineering. He was the invited leading guest editor of the special issue on “Advances in Compliant Mechanisms: Theories, Tools and Applications” in the international journal of Mechanical Sciences (MS) (SCI indexed) and serves as the associate editor of the same journal from June 2014. He was the recipient of a series of awards/prizes including the postgraduate research prizes twice presented by Heriot-Watt University, the 3rd Prize for the Young Engineers Research Paper Prize 2012 (Ireland) presented by IMechE and Engineers Ireland, and the RIA Charlemont Award for 2015 presented by Royal Irish Academy.
