Prof. Hao has focused on the research frontiers of reliability analysis and optimization. Systematic works were carried out on the topics of “exact modeling, load-carrying capacity analysis and integrated design of lightweight variable-stiffness structures” and “efficient reliability-based design optimization (RBDO) methods for complex structures under multi-source uncertainties”. Specifically, a series of efficient analysis and optimization methods of typical variable-stiffness structures were established, and then an enhanced chaos control method and an adaptive-loop algorithm were developed for the RBDO of complex structures. He has published more than 60 peer-reviewed papers indexed by SCI, including 40 first-author and corresponding-author papers. Five papers were selected as ESI Top papers. Besides, he has been authorized 20 patents for inventions. The research achievements have been enclosed by two national aerospace industry standards. Moreover, the research achievements have been applied in the design of a series of important aerospace structures. In addition, he has been awarded as the First Prize of Higher School Outstanding Achievements in Technological Invention (third achiever), and Outstanding Young Scientist by the Asian Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization. He has been exceptionally promoted as a full Professor, and enrolled in the Young Elite Scientists Sponsorship Program by China Association for Science and Technology.
