The RMIT photonics expert has been elected as a Foreign Fellow.
RMIT’s Distinguished Professor Min Gu FTSE has recently been elected as a Foreign Fellow of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE).
Professor Gu is RMIT’s Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Research Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
He is a world leading authority in the fields of nanophotonics, nanofabrication and biophotonics with internationally renowned expertise in three-dimensional optical imaging theory. And his research has led to significant impacts on societal challenges in renewable energy, information technology and big data storage.
He says the emerging discipline of biophotonics, combined with nanofabrication, allows scientists to develop new devices with accuracy at a nanoscale.
“These devices can be a platform to develop the new medical and health strategy for community,” he says.
As one of CAE’s Foreign Fellows, Professor Gu joins an exclusive group of innovators around the world, and he says he has been excited since he got the news.
Foreign Fellows are elected from scholars and specialists with foreign citizenship who have made significant contributions to engineering and technology in China, and enjoy high academic standing.
For Professor Gu, who studied in China, the award not only recognises his contribution to science and engineering, but also recognises the quality of education and training he had in China, he says.
“The award gives me a new platform for promoting the collaboration between Australia and China including ATSE and CAE,” he says.
