Dr. Guangbo Hao earned the Bachelor Degree of Engineering (top 1% among 500 students), Master Degree of Engineering, and Doctor Degree of Engineering (first PhD) all from Northeastern University (NEU, 985 University) in China in July 2004, March 2007 and July 2008, respectively. In September 2011, he was awarded Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (second PhD) after a subsequent three-year fully-funded studying in Mechanical Engineering at Heriot-Watt University (HWU) (2016 TIMES University ME subject ranking 8th), UK. With his recognized publication record and research track record, he was selected to directly join the School of Engineering (

Electrical and Electronic Engineering) at University College Cork (UCC), to take a permanent full-time Lecturer (as youngest academic) in Mechanical Engineering in November 2011. He also completed a PG certificate in Teaching and Learning in High Education at UCC in 2016. His current research interests focus on design of compliant mechanisms and robotics and their applications in precision engineering (3D printing), energy harvesting and biomedical devices. His research works were indicated by 1 filed EU patent, 70+ peer-reviewed publications (27 SCI indexed journals with 24 in senior authorships) and 11invited talks (over the last five years), and by successfully securing a 122K Euro research fund as an independent PI.

Dr. Hao is also an Academic Associate in Tyndall National Institute, and secretary-general of Association of China-Ireland Academics. He has been being a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME), a committee member of Section Operation Executive Board of ASME UK & Ireland Section, and a member of the Irish Manufacturing Council (IMC). He is the chair of the ASME IDETC 2016 compliant mechanisms symposium. He is serving as the associate editor of the international journal of Mechanical Sciences (ISI indexed) from June 2014 and was the leading guest editor for two special issues in the same journal. He was the recipient of a series of research awards/prizes including two postgraduate research prizes presented by Heriot-Watt University, the Young Engineers Research Paper Prize 2012 (3rd Prize) presented by IMechE and Engineers Ireland, the Royal Irish Academy Charlemont Award for 2015, the Best Interactive Poster Award at the MR-6 Compliant Mechanisms and Micro/Nano Mechanisms of the 2015 ASME IDETC/CIE (senior authorship), and the Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE/IFToMM Remar2015 conference (co-authored). He has been 

invited as a Keynote Speaker at the 2016 Workshop on Compliant Mechanisms (in the framework of the "GdR Robotique") in Paris, has gave invited talks in prestigious institutes such as University College Dublin and Institute of Electrical Engineering in Chinese Academy of Sciences.
