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 simulation-based engineering of multi-scale and multi-physics systems. One focus is computational electromagnetics and applications. It is a multi-disciplinary subject which lies at the intersection of applied electromagnetics, computational mathematics and computer-aided engineering. He is also interested in advanced computational techniques for multi-scale and multi-physics engineering problems. His research work has an extensive impact on both the civilian and commercial engineering applications, including modeling, design and optimization of advanced antennas, RF/microwave devices, artificial materials and integrated circuits.
