Academic Areas: Flexible mechatronics, human-centered robotics, wearable technologies, motion biomechanics

Dr. Guo has been with the School of Mechanical Science and Engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology since 2012. Before that, he received the B.S. degree in theoretical and applied mechanics from the Department of Engineering Mechanics and Science, Peking University, Beijing, China, in 2006, and the Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA, in 2011.

Motivated to solve the scientific problems of theoretical modeling and efficient distributed sensing of biological behaviors, he has been working on research of flexible mechatronics, with the applications to human-centered robotics, wearable technologies, motion biomechanics, etc.

He has published one English book with Springer-Nature and HUST Press, over 40 peer-reviewed papers, 6 authorized invention patent / software copyrights. He was awarded the Chutian scholar in Hubei province in 2013, the best paper of IEEE/ASME Trans. Mechatronics in 2015. He serves as a guest editor for Int. J. Intelligent Robotics and Applications and associate editorial board members for Current Mechanics and Advanced Materials, Current Chinese Engineering Science, and IEEE/ASME Int. Conf. Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics.
