Prof. Hao Ma, University of Science and Technology of China
Dr. Hao Ma is a tenure-track full professor in the Department of Thermal Science and Energy Engineering at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). I was a postdoc at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and a member of the seven-institutions Center for Thermal Energy Transport under Irradiation. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Material Physics from USTC in 2014 and my PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University in 2020. I have published 20+ journal papers and 1 peer-reviewed conference paper, 17 of which are first-authored, and most are in prestigious journals including Physics Review Letters and Nano Letters. My research was highlighted by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Scilight, and covered by the Cornell Chronicle and Argonne Science Highlight. I have received several highly competitive awards, including the Chinese government award for outstanding self-financed students abroad in 2020 (1/500 globally) and the Grants-In-Aid of Research award in 2019. I have delivered over ten invited talks and conference presentations. I am now serving as an early career editorial board member for four journals: Journal of Materials Science and Technology, Materials Research Letters, Engineering Reports and EcoEnergy, and as a peer reviewer for many journals.
