Dr. Chun Zhao joined the University of York as a Lecturer in Microengineering in 2022. Prior to this, he worked as a research scientist at Sharp Laboratories of Europe, UK (2015-2016), a research associate in MEMS at the University of Cambridge, UK (2016-2018), and a faculty member at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China (2018-2021).

Dr. Zhao has been an active researcher in the field of MEMS sensors and devices since 2011, and contributed to the development of (1) MEMS sensors based on weakly coupled resonators; (2) high resolution (10^{9}g level) MEMS accelerometers (resonant and capacitive); (3) high-performance MEMS sensors employing nonlinear effects and/or modal-interactions within resonant structures. He is interested in investigating alternative materials and/or interesting physical phenomena for improving sensor performances. At the same time, he is equally interested in applying these sensors to a wide range of applications, such as biosensors, environmental sensors and many more.
