Research Profile

Peng Liangming, male, born in August 1970, currently works as a professor and doctoral supervisor at the Department of Modern Mechanics, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). Peng obtained his bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 1993 and his Ph.D. in Structural Mechanics in 1998 both from Dalian University of Technology. From October 1998 to October 2002, Peng did his postdoctoral work at Nagaoka University of Technology, Japan, at Japan Fine Ceramics Center and at Pohang University of Science and Technology, ROK successively. In late 2002, Peng was engaged as an associate professor at the Department of Modern Mechanics, USTC and was promoted to full professorship at the end of 2007. Peng was a recipient of the Scholarship of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology in 1998. In 2000, Peng’s research was supported by the Science and Technology Agency (STA) Fellowship Program of Japan. Peng entered the list of candidates of the “New Century Talents Supporting Program” of the Ministry of Education of China in 2007. Peng was also a recipient of the first prize of the USTC “KC Wong Scholarship” Award.
     Prof. Peng is currently presiding over one project and participating in the other both supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China. Besides, he also is undertaking projects supported by a grant from the “New Century Talents Supporting Program” of the Ministry of Education of China and from the General Armament Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. Prof. Peng’s research team has established sound cooperative relationships with a number of research and production units or institutions. So far, Prof. Peng has published over 50 research papers in international academic journals indexed by SCI, with a total of citations by others exceeding more than 100 times. He also serves from time to time as an invited peer reviewer for a number of influential and authoritative journals at home and abroad such as Composites Science and Technology, Journal of Materials Research, Intermetallics, Philosophical Magazine, Materials Research Bulletin, Surface and Coatings Technology, Materials Science and Engineering A, Journal of Materials Science, Eurasian Chemico-Technological Journal, Journal of Materials Science & Technology, etc.
Prof. Peng’s main research directions at present lie in 1) optimal design, preparation and mechanical behavior of advanced structural materials (new multi ceramic and composite materials, C / C composites, ultra-high temperature alloys, amorphous alloys and composite materials, etc.); 2) development and design of new heat sealing materials and heat seal structure; 3) development of new thermoelectric materials and their thermoelectric transport properties; and 4) system design, synthesis and deformation behavior of negative stiffness and negative Poisson's ratio materials.
