Associate Professor Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Dr. Peng Yu received bachelor and master degrees from the department of mechanical engineering of Tsinghua University in 1997 and 2000, respectively. Afterwards, he studied in the department of Physics of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and received the PhD degree in 2003. From 2004 to 2006, he was granted Humboldt research fellowship and worked at TU Darmstadt in Germany. From 2006 to 2012, he served as a senior research fellow at the University of Queensland in Australia. In 2013, He was recognized as overseas high-caliber personnel (level B) by Shenzhen municipality and joined the department of materials and engineering of the Southern University of Science and Technology as an associate professor.

Dr. Peng Yu’s research interests include understanding the basic knowledge of powder metallurgy of advanced materials, such as light alloys, metal matrix composites, and porous metals, as well as developing technologies with industrial application potentials based on powder injection molding and additive manufacturing. His researches have led to over 60 papers published in international journals and over 30 patents. He was also invited by international conferences to give keynote speeches for several times.
