Jing Peng received both the B.S. (2014) and Ph.D. (2019) from the University of Science and Technology of China under the advisors of Professors Changzheng Wu and Yi Xie. After finishing the postdoc work, he joined Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology Chinese Academy of Sciences as an associate researcher and assistant professor. His research interests mainly focus on the controllable synthesis of two-dimensional materials and energy-related applications. Till now, Jing Peng has produced over 20 published papers in prestigious scientific journals including Nat. Chem., Nat. Commun., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Adv. Mater. and Natl. Sci. Rev.. He has won the funds including the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the National Postdoctoral Program for Innovative Talents, and also been awarded the Special Prize of President Scholarship for Postgraduate Students (CAS).
