Jiao came to Melbourne in 2013 as an independent ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher after two consecutive postdoctoral appointments.
Nanotechnology; optical engineering; photonics devices.
He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and a Singapore Millennium Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, Photonics Research Centre, Nanyang Technological University.
His recent work on surface plasmon polaritons has led to a new dimension of the dynamic manipulation of surface waves for the next generation of photonic circuits. He has published widely in prestigious journals, such as Science, Nature Communications, Physical Review Letters, and Nano Letters.
Jiao is currently the sole Principal Investigator in the ARC funded project, Tailoring light with advanced plasmonic devices.
Jiao was awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Research Fellowship in 2014 and is aligned with the RMIT School of Engineering.
