Dr. Wanlin Guo Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, chair Professor in mechanics and nanoscience, founder and director of the Key Laboratory of Intelligent Nano Materials and Devices of Ministry of Education and the Institute of Nanoscience of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He received the National Science Foundation of China for Distinguished Young Scholars in 1996 and the honor of Cheung Kong Scholars in 1999. He obtained the National Nature Science Prize of China in 2012 and the Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Mathematical Mechanics Prize in 2019. He has published 400+ refereed papers in journals such as Nature Nanotech, Nature Comm., Phys. Rev. Lett., Nano Lett., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Adv. Mater., J. Mech. Phys. Solids et al.  His current research focuses on 1) three dimensional fatigue fracture and damage tolerance and durability design of structures at high temperature; 2) intelligent nano materials and devices, multiscale physical mechanics, novel conception and technology for efficient energy conversion; 3) Hydrovoltaics and brain-like intelligence.
