Peifeng joined the research group in early 2018. Prior to his position at the University of Glasgow, he was an Assistant Professor in School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2010–2017, and a postdoctoral researcher in Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering Group at University of Oxford in 2007–2010. Peifeng obtained his PhD in Materials Science from Imperial College London in 2006. One of the recent focuses in his research has been on additive manufacturing (3D printing) of metals. The main strategy is to exploit the advantages of combined advanced experimental characterisation and material modelling techniques at various length and time scales. Application includes light alloys (Ti, Al), additive manufactured metals, metal foams, polymeric foams and fibre reinforced polymeric laminates, and ceramics for automotive, aerospace, defence and even biomedical sectors.
