Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, State University of New York at Buffalo, NY, 1990

Research Interests:

Energy storage and conversion materials and devices including (1) development of high performance electrochemical capacitors and energy density theory for electrochemical capacitors; (2) investigation of capacity degradation and fade mechanisms of Li-ion and Li-ion polymer batteries; (3) development of high performance and low cost fuel cells; and (4) development of dynamic electric circuit models for electrochemical capacitors, rechargeable batteries, and fuel cells. One of his papers was ranked the top 15th most cited paper in the Journal of Electrochemical Society.


Dr. Zheng has published more than eighty-seven (87) articles in scholarly journals, and eighty (80) papers in conference proceedings in the fields of energy storage, fuel cells, nano-sensors, photonics, and thin film growth, and been awarded eleven (11) patens, and two (2) patents have been licensed by a private company located in Los Angeles, CA. He has won numerous research grants from many governmental agencies such as NSF, NASA, and DOD totaling more than $12 M. He has graduated six (6) doctoral degree students and nine (9) master's degree students, and has supervised three (3) post-doctoral fellows. He has received many awards including National Research Council Fellow Award in 1993, Army Research & Development Achievement Award in 1997, NASA Faculty Research Award in 1999, and Progress Energy Professional Development Award in 2005. He is member of Materials Research Society, Electrochemical Society, and Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
