Academic Profile

Dr. Song Peng received his Bachelor degree in 2012 at Fudan University, and PhD degree in 2016 at National University of Singapore (NUS). From 2017 to 2021, he continued his postdoc research at NUS with Prof. Loh Kian Ping and then at Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics with Prof. Stuart Parkin. His research in two-dimensional materials physics and electronic devices has made several major breakthroughs and leads to publications in top scientific journals (Nature, Nature Materials etc).

In May 2021, he was awarded the prestigious Nanyang Assistant Professorship and joined School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering and School of Materials Science & Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as Assistant Professor. At NTU, he continues to explore novel device physics in low-dimensional materials and topological quantum materials, and their further integration into electronic devices for advanced information technologies.

Postdoc positions are available in the group, we are always looking for talented and motivated students (undergraduate, postgraduate) to join our exciting journey. Please email for further discussion if you are interested.
