He received his B.S., M.S., and Doctorate, all in Engineering Physics, from Tsinghua University, Beijing in 1989, 1991, and 1995, respectively. Then he left China and worked as a Research Fellow in KAIST, South Korea, and a Research Associate in Tohoku University, Japan. From 1999 to 2001, he worked as a research staff member in NYU-Tandon School of Engineering, where he completed his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in the same time period. He joined the faculty at Rutgers in July 2001. He is a recognized expert in heat transfer, with notable expertise in radiation transport, heat transfer enhancement, and nanoscale heat transfer. His discovery and solution for conserving scattered energy and scattering angle in radiation transfer modeling is of significant contribution to the advancement of radiative transfer computation. He is a pioneer in ultrafast laser radiation transport modeling and applications. He explored plasma-mediated ablation and developed it successfully to tissue grafting and decontamination. He conducted leading research on near-field radiation, addressing emerging technological applications such as MEMS/NEMS sensors, ultrafine measurement, and biological sensing at the molecular level.  Nowadays he explores innovative utilization of renewable solar energy and investigates fundamentals in interfacial heat transfer and boiling mechanisms at the molecular level. He has supervised 17 PhD and 20 Master students and mentored 14 postdoctoral/visiting scholars. He received research funds from the NSF, NASA/NJSGC, USDA, ASEE/DOD, MTF, NIH, NJ Nanotechnology Consortium, Charles and Johanna Busch Memorial Funds, NNSFC, JSPS, and other sources.  He also received a teaching award from Rutgers Vice President Office for Undergraduate Education in 2002. He is the author or co-author of over 250 articles/editorials in archival journals and conference proceedings. He is the Editor-in-Chief for Journal of Enhanced Heat Transfer and a Managing Editor for journal Heat Transfer Research, and an editorial board member for Applied Thermal Engineering and Frontiers in Energy. Dr. Guo is an elected Fellow of ASME and ASTFE. He was the K-18 technical committee Chair of Heat Transfer Division in ASME during 2009-2015.
