ARC DECRA Fellow
Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr Shuhua Peng is an ARC DECRA Fellow in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Before joining UNSW, he was an Australian Endeavour Fellow visiting the University of California Riverside. He worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the RMIT University and the University of Melbourne respectively from 2013 to 2016, which was supported by an Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) Fellowship. He completed his Ph.D. in 2013 at Deakin University in conjunction with CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE). His research interests include polymer nanocomposites, colloidal and interface science, surface droplets, micro- and nano-fabrication, and stimuli-responsive nanomaterials.

Dr. Peng is looking for highly motivated and self-disciplined students majoring in Polymer/Materials/Mechanical/Electrical Engineering to join the group. For interested applicants please contact via email: shuhua.peng@unsw.edu.au
