Dr. Luo is an Assistant Professor at the University of Arkansas. He received his Bachelor’s degree and Ph.D. degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 2003 and 2010, respectively, both in electrical engineering. From 2007 to 2010, He was a joint Ph.D. student at the Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES) at Virginia Tech, supported by Chinese Scholarship Council and CPES. From 2010 to 2014, he worked at CPES, Virginia Tech, first as a postdoc researcher, and then as a Research Scientist. From 2014 to 2017, Dr. Luo worked at The Ohio State University as a Research Assistant Professor. In July 2017, Dr. Luo joined the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR, as a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor. His research interests include high power density converter design, high-density EMI filter design, and power module packaging/integration for wide band-gap devices.
