Chunlei Guo works as an Associate Professor in The Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester in New York, USA. His research focuses on ultrafast laser-matter interactions. In addition, his research led to the inventions of the so-called black and colored metals, which may find a broad range of applications in light absorption and emission, energy harnessing, and electronics cooling. The outcomes of his research have widely expanded ranging from highlights in top scientific journals such as Nature and Science to media reports such as in The New York Times and MSNBC. Guo has chaired or served as a Committee Member in numerous conferences and was the Past Chair of Short-Wavelength and High-Field Physics in the Optical Society of America. Moreover, he received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Connecticut and later was a recipient of the University’s Outstanding Alumni Award. Before Rochester, he performed his postdoctoral research at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where his work was awarded the Postdoctoral Publication Prize in Experimental Sciences. Guo currently serves as an Associate Editor for the journal of Optics Express.
