Gao Min teaches electronics at the Cardiff School of Engineering and leads research activities of Thermoelectric Group. He has a strong background in thermoelectrics and measurement techniques of electrical and thermal transport properties of semiconductors. His recent research interests focuses on novel approaches to thermoelectrics in an attempt to bridge a traditional conversion technology with quantum realm and micro/nano world. He has also actively involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching on a variety of modules associated with electronic circuits and systems. He has authored and co-authored one book and over 80 papers in the area of thermoelectrics. He has also served as the Programme chairman for the 19th International Conference on Thermoelectric (2000) and, on several ocasions, as an invited speaker, session chairman and scientific committee member at International and European Thermoelectric Conferences.
