Biography

Biography

Prof. Qiye Zheng received his B.S. in Physics at Peking University in 2012. He then received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017 where his research focused on the heat transfer and structure-properties-processing relationship in novel thermal functional materials. Before joining HKUST in 2022, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory where he developed novel high-throughput optical thermal metrologies for materials characterization, scanning-electron-microscopy-based nano-resolution thermal imaging, and thermal energy storage and heat transfer regulation for building applications. 

Prof. Zheng’s research interest is focused on understanding and engineering fundamental transport phenomena and new materials for applications in energy, electronics, and thermal management. His research exploits and develop novel optical experimental techniques by leveraging ultrafast optical spectroscopy, advanced light modulation, and near-field optics to achieve high throughput micro-/nano-scale heat transfer, mechanical and chemical characterization for functional materials to significantly accelerate the materials development and deployment. He is also interested in developing solid-state device and materials with the ability to actively and controllably manipulate heat flow and provide dynamic storage of thermal energy on-demand which could have great impact on thermal management in fast charging batteries, microelectronics, and green buildings.
