Only 10 people were selected nationwide, and BIT members have been selected for the program for two consecutive terms!

Cao is dedicated to theoretical computational research on the structure and dynamic properties of surface interface systems. 

She has innovated key methods and techniques for theoretical simulation of surface interface systems, and has discovered a series of new phenomena and mechanisms related to surface interface systems. 

Cao has published research results on ion hydration as co-first author or theoretical first author in the journal Nature. The achievement was also selected as one of China's top 10 scientific and technological progress news and China's top 10 scientific progress in 2018.

Cao has also published multiple papers in internationally renowned academic journals such as Science, Nature, National Science Review, Physical Review Letters, and Advanced Materials. Her doctoral dissertation was invited by Springer Nature to be published as an English monograph.

The China Young Female Scientist Award was jointly established by the All-China Women's Federation, the China Association for Science and Technology, the National Committee of the China United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and L'Oréal China in 2004. 

Established in 2015, the "Future Female Scientist Program" aims to discover and cultivate female scientific and technological workers who are in the doctoral or postdoctoral research stage, engaged in basic science or life science research, and have strong research capabilities and development potential.
