Biography Summary

Dr. Peng received the BASc and MASc degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from the China University of Geosciences at Beijing in 2007 and 2010, respectively, and the PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering and Nanotechnology from the University of Waterloo in 2014. From 2014 to 2015, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Centre for Advanced Materials Joining at the University of Waterloo. He then took an associate professor position in the Mechanical Engineering department at the Beihang University, China. In 2021, he moved back to the MME at the University of Waterloo. Dr. Peng’s research activities and interests are in the general area of materials science and processing technologies for micro/nano electronics, medical and aerospace applications, specialized in micro/nano-joining, laser processing, and brazing.
