Prof Zheng received his Ph.D from Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) (2011). Before joining CUHKSZ, he was a Visiting Scholar at HKUST (2011-2012), an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden Germany (2013-2015), and a Research Assistant Professor of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with a courtesy appointment of Junior Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Study at HKUST (2015-2019). Prof Zheng’s research focuses on advanced carbon materials, ranging from nanocomposites with graphene, carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers and 2D materials, to nanostructured materials for various wearable applications. He has published more than 60 peer reviewed papers in top-ranked scientific journals such as Mater. Today, Prog Mater Sci, ACS Nano, Adv Funct Mater, Mater Horiz, Nanoscale Horiz, ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces and Carbon, with a total Web of Science citations of 4000+ and an H-index of 31.
