ECE Prof. Zhen Peng Receives Young Scientist Awards

Zhen Peng, Assistant Professor in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has recently received the Young Scientist Award of 2013 Asia-Pacific Radio Science Conference. He has also received the Young Scientist Award of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) Commission B, 2013 International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory.

The awards recognize his work on domain decomposition methods and discontinuous Galerkin methods for large multi-scale electromagnetic simulation. Real-world engineering applications are often multi-disciplinary and multi-scale in nature. The spatial and time scales of these problems often differ by orders magnitude. Such multi-scale electromagnetic problems tax heavily on existing numerical methods in terms of desired accuracy and stability. To address these challenges, Dr. Zhen Peng and his colleagues have developed a variety of emerging computational techniques that have the potential to bring a major breakthrough. The capability of these methods has been illustrated through mission-critical real-world applications.

Dr. Zhen Peng joined Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as an Assistant Professor on August 1, 2013. He was a Senior Research Associate at the ElectroScience Laboratory at the Ohio State University (2010-2013). His research interests are directed towards a long-term goal of simulation-based engineering of multi-scale and multi-physics systems. His current research interests include: computational electromagnetics and multi-physics analysis, power integrity (PI) and signal integrity (SI) analyses of integrated circuits (ICs), electromagnetic compatibility/interference (EMC/EMI) analysis, simulation-based design of multi-scale metamaterials and reconfigurable antennas for wireless communication systems.
