He is currently a Distinguished Research Professor at the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering and of Bioengineering at UCLA.

Prof. Ho’s research interests include phenotypic personalized medicine (PPM), micro/nano fluidics, molecular sensors and turbulence. He was ranked by ISI as one of the top 250 most cited researchers in all engineering categories (2001-2014). He was on the advisory board for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Journal and is a member of the IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems Coordinating Committee. He was an Associate Editor of the Journal of Fluids Engineering and an Associate Editor of the AIAA Journal. He also has served as a Guest Editor for the Annual Review of Fluid Dynamics.

Prof. Ho holds ten honorary professorships, including the Einstein Professor from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 2014, he was awarded a Doctor of Engineering honoris causa from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He was inducted as a member of the US National Academy of Engineering and elected as an Academician of Academia Sinica in Taiwan. He is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering as well as International Society for Nano Manipulation, Manufacturing and Measurement.
