overview

  • Chunlei (Peggy) Wang is a full professor in the Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department at Florida International University. She received her MS (1993) and PhD (1997) in Physics from Jilin University (China). Before joining FIU, she held various research positions at Osaka University (1995-2001) and University of California Irvine (2001-2006). At FIU, Dr. Wang has developed a vigorous research program that integrates electrochemically active materials with device applications. Her group focuses on the development of micro and nanofabrication methods for building novel micro and nanostructures and synthesizing nanomaterials that have unique structures and useful properties for energy and biological applications. In support of her work she has assembled state-of-the-art equipment and a high-quality team of students. Her research is currently supported by National Science Foundation. She is a recipient of DARPA Young Faculty Award in 2008. FIU faculty award in research and creative activities (2013) and FIU Kauffman Professor Award (2009). She was a co-founder of Carbon Microbattery Corporation (Enevate Corp), a consultant at Intel Lab (2012), and a guest scientist at Max Planck Institute (2012-2013).
