Profile Summary

Dr. Yuebing Zheng is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. He is also associated with the Materials Science and Engineering program, Texas Materials Institute, and Center for Electrochemistry. Dr. Zheng joined the University of Texas at Austin faculty in the fall of 2013 after three years' postdoctoral research at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Zheng received his Ph.D. in Engineering Science and Mechanics from the Pennsylvania State University in 2010.

Zheng group explore nanoscience and nanotechnology at the interfaces of photonics, fluidics, and molecular engineering. Our mission is to 1) develop and apply advanced analytical nanotools to improve fundamental understanding of light and matter down to the molecular/atomic scale; 2) leverage our improved understanding to design and manufacture optically active nanomaterials and nanodevices that will benefit energy, healthcare, and national security; and 3) cross-train our students in the multiple fields of engineering, materials science, physics, chemistry, and biology.

Our research findings have been recognized with awards such as the 2014 Beckman Young Investigator Award from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, the 2014 Graduate School Alumni Society Early Career Awards from the Pennsylvania State University, the 2010 Alumni Association Dissertation Award from the Pennsylvania State University, the 2009 Rustum and Della Roy Innovation in Materials Research Award, and the 2008 American Academy of Mechanics Founder's Grant and Prize from the Robert M. and Mary Haythornwaite Foundation.
