Lifeng Zhang, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Nanoengineering

Prof. Zhang’s research interests focus on the engineering aspects of advanced nanomaterials including polymer, ceramic and carbon nanofibrous materials and their nanocomposites.  The advanced nanomaterials developed in his research have seen a wide range of applications such as energy conversion and storage, optical/gas sensors, photo-catalysis, ballistic protection, biomedical uses and etc.  His goals are to understand the structural and morphological development at nanometer scale during nanomaterials processing; to design, fabricate, and characterize novel nanomaterials; and to promote nanomaterials’ commercial applications.
