Dr. Peng is currently an associate professor of MSE at Clemson University. He received his Ph.D. at Georgia Institute of Technology, and M.S. and B.S in Tsinghua University. Dr. Peng’s research is focused on the advanced processing of ceramics and polymers and the thermodynamics, kinetics and properties of materials. The materials of interest include the structural and high temperature ceramics for the extreme environments, high performance sensor materials for medical and health monitoring and extreme environment monitoring, materials for renewable energies, and nuclear materials. Dr. Peng's current research projects are focused on additive manufacturing of ceramics, sensor materials for clinical surgaries, thermal and environmental barrier ceramic coatings, nuclear fuel fabrication, ceramic nanofibers and composites, smart materials, sintering of ultra-high temperature ceramics, and the high-temperature oxidation resistance of borides and carbides. Dr. Peng has extensive materials research experience. He has published 43 peer-reviewed journal papers, with a total citation of 733, and is the leading or corresponding author of several highly cited papers in his field. He is now serving as an officer of Basic Science Division of ACerS. He also organizes and serves as session chairs of professional conferences such as Fiber Society Conference and MS&T.

Research Interests:

Additive manufacturing of ceramics and polymers
Thermodynamics, kinetics and microstructure of materials
Ceramic fibers, coatings, and ceramic matrix composites (CMCs)
