Hao Chi graduated from Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an, China, with B.S. degree in applied physics in 1994. He received the M.S degree in optical engineering in 1997 and the Ph.D. degree in electronics in 2001 both from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. From Oct. 2000 to June 2001, he was a research associate with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. From July 2001 to June 2003, he worked as postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Electronic Engineering, Shanghai Jiaotong University. In July 2003, he joined the faculty of the Department of Information Science & Electronic Engineering, Zhejiang University. He was an associate professor since Dec. 2003. From June 2006 to Feb. 2008, he was a visiting scholar at the Microwave Photonics Research Laboratory, School of Information Technology and Engineering, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, under the support of the New Star project of Zhejiang University. He was promoted to full professor in Dec. 2008. His research interests include optical communications, optical networks, microwave photonics, optical signal processing, and fiber optics, and so on. In the recent years, he focuses on the research of microwave photonics, including photonics-based microwave signal generation, processing, transmission, measurement, and so on. He has authored and co-authored over 70 journal papers (45 papers were published in the well-known international journals) and over 20 international conference papers.  He is an active reviewer for some well-known Chinese and international academic journals, such as IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology, Chinese Optics Letters. He is an IEEE member.
