Dr. Zhen Peng is currently an Assistant Professor at Applied Electromagnetic Group, University of New Mexico. He was a Senior Research Associate at ElectroScience Lab, The Ohio State University (2010-2013). His research is directed towards a long-term goal of replicating wave physics with intelligent algorithms on state-of-the-art computers, where virtual experiments can be performed for the prediction, discovery, and design of complex systems at unprecedented scales. In pursuit of the long-term goal, the recent research focuses on three subjects: (1) supercomputing- enabled design-through-analysis towards extreme-scale, (2) physics-oriented statistical wave analysis integrating order and chaos, and (3) data-driven computational electrodynamics with machine intelligence. His research work has an extensive impact on both the civilian and commercial engineering applications, including advanced antennas, radio frequency integrated circuits, electromagnetic interference and compatibility, signal and power integrity, and wireless communication. 

Dr. Peng is the recipient of 2017 IEEE Albuquerque Section Outstanding Young Engineer Award, 2016 UNM ECE Department's Distinguished Researcher Award, 2015 Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES) Early Career Award, 2014 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award, a recipient of 2014 Young Scientist Award of Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale (URSI) General Assembly and Scientific Symposium, 2013 Young Scientist Award of the International Union of Radio Science, Commission B, 2013 Young Scientist Award of International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory, 2013 Young Scientist Award of Asia-Pacific Radio Science Conference, a candidate for 2012 P. W. King award of IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, the recipient of the Best Paper Award for 2011 from ElectroScience LabThe Ohio State Unviersity, and a recipient of Young Science Award from International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory (EMT-S 2010). His Ph.D. thesis work was awarded 2010 The first Prize of Beijing Science and Technology Progress.
