Dr. Peng is currently associate professor of MSE at Clemson University, and affiliated faculty member of Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR). He received his Ph.D. at Georgia Institute of Technology, and M.S. and B.S at Tsinghua University. Dr. Peng’s research has been focused on (1) advanced processing and manufacturing of ceramic devices for energy conversion and sensors for clinical surgeries, and (2) understanding and predicting material's processing, microstructure, and property predictions using machine learning/artifical intelligence.  His current research projects include machine learning guided laser-based additive/subtractive manufacturing of sensors, membrane devices, and smart bio-components.  He has published more than 50 peer-reviewed journal papers. He is now serving as an officer of the Basic Science Division of American Ceramic Society.
