Xiao Guo currently is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the University of Queensland (Brisbane, Australia). He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Physics from Northeastern University in 2017. He then received his Master in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from the University of Hong Kong in 2018 and his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Queensland at the end of 2022.

His research focuses on experimental light-matter interaction phenomena and nanophotonics in mid-infrared and terahertz regimes. His expertises include measuring complex-valued permittivity using near-field optical microscopy and simulations of light-matter interactions in solids.

He contributes to develop quantitative nanoprobe methods for scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) and to further study nanoscale heterogeneity in semiconductor nanodevices, prototypical quantum devices for superconducting quantum computing, and biological materials.
