Dr Gao is a Reader at the School of Computing and Engineering, University of Huddersfield. He joined the University in February 2008 as a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT), School of Computing and Engineering, University of Huddersfield.

Between 1985 and 1988, he studied precision measurement and instrumentation as a B.Eng. and M.Eng. student at the Department of Precision Engineering, Tianjin University, China. After his M.Eng. studies, he worked from 1988 to 1997 as Assistant Engineer, Engineer, Assistant Director of Laboratory and Director of Laboratory at the Micro-Dimension Laboratory, National Institute of Metrology, Beijing, China. His responsibilities included mechanical and optical design, software programming and data analysis in seven research projects. The projects: “High precision determination of 633nm He-Ne Laser wavelength in air” and “High precision micro-displacement measuring system” were awarded National Invention Prizes of the State Science and Technology Commission of China in 1995.

From November 1995 to September 1997, he worked as a visiting scholar at Lab 5.12 (Micro-topography), Physikalisch-Techniche-Bundesanstalt (PTB), Braunschweig, Germany.  During this period, he was involved in research for the establishment of a calibration system for Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPMs).

During November 1997 to October 2001, he was a full time Ph.D. student at the School of Engineering, Coventry University and the School of Engineering, University of Warwick. His Ph.D. project: “Development of a novel multi-Function Tribological Nano-Probe Microscope” won a Commendation Award at the ‘Metrology for World Class Manufacturing Awards 2001’, held by NPL and DTI.

Following his Ph.D. studies, he worked as a Research Associate at the Wolfson School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Loughborough University, Loughborough, UK.
