Chih-Ming Ho is the Ben Rich-Lockheed Martin Chair Professor at the UCLA School of Engineering and the Director of the Institute for Cell Mimetic Space Exploration (CMISE). He graduated from the Mechanical Engineering Department of the National Taiwan University. After receiving his Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University, Ho started his career at the University of Southern California and rose to the rank of Full Professor. In 1991, he moved to the University of California, Los Angeles, to lead the establishment of the microelectromechanical system (MEMS) field in UCLA and served as the founding Director of the Center for Micro Systems. The UCLA MEMS research has been recognized as one of the best in the world. He served as UCLA Associate Vice Chancellor for Research from 2001 to 2005.

He is an internationally renowned scientist in micro- and nanofluidics, bio-nano technology, and turbulence. He was ranked by ISI as one of the top 250 most cited researchers in all engineering categories around the world, and by ECI as number 7 in the field of MEMS. In 1997, Ho was inducted as a member of the National Academy of Engineering. In the next year, he was elected as an Academician of Academia Sinica, which honors scholars of Chinese origin with exceptional achievements in liberal arts and the sciences. Ho holds five honorary professorships. He has published 220 papers and 7 patents. He has presented more than 100 keynote talks in international conferences. Ho was elected fellow of the American Physical Society as well as American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics for his contributions in a wide spectrum of technical areas.

In addition to his academic accomplishments, he has made extensive contributions to professional societies around the world. He has chaired the Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) of the American Physical Society, which is the leading platform in the United States for scientists interested in fundamental fluid dynamics. He is on the advisory board for AIAA Journal and is a member of the IEEE/ASME JMEMS coordinating committee. He was an Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Fluids Engineering and an Associate Editor of the AAA Journal. He also has served as a Guest Editor for Annual Review of Fluid Dynamics.

On the international level, Ho has served on advisory panels to provide assistance to many countries and regionsFrance, China, United Kingdom, Israel, Taiwan, and Japanon the development of nano- and microtechnologies. Ho also has chaired or served on numerous organizing committees of international conferences on high-technology topics.
