The Materials Science and Engineering program is pleased to announce our newest faculty member, Dr. Gang Cao. Cao is joining us form the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Kentucky where he was the Jack and Linda Gill Eminent Professor. His research interests focus on the discovery and study of novel quantum materials, particularly heavy transition metal oxides and high-field, high – pressure and low-temperature material properties. Cao has more than 190 publications including one review book. His work has been cited more than 6,200 times. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
“CU Boulder has the world-class intellectual assets for materials research and the Material Science and Engineering Program provides one of the best vehicles to advance comprehensive materials research in the nation. It is a privilege to be a part of it, and I fervently look forward to joing the CU faculty,” says Cao.
Welcome, Professor Cao!
