Hao is deeply passionate about building precision measurement tools for biology. At Kanvas, Hao is looking to leverage his technological background to make a meaningful impact on human health. Before co-founding Kanvas, he developed experimental and computational approaches to enable next-generation microbial imaging. Prior to that, Hao studied the theoretical foundations of precision measurement in quantum optomechanics. Hao obtained his Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University. He holds bachelor’s degrees in physics and mechanical engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology. Hao is a recipient of the Leroy Apker Award from the American Physical Society.
