Yuebing Zheng is an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. He received his Ph.D. in Engineering Science and Mechanics (with Prof. Tony Jun Huang) from The Pennsylvania State University in 2010. He was a postdoctoral researcher (with Prof. Paul S. Weiss) at the University of California, Los Angeles from 2010 to 2013.
His research group engage in interdisciplinary research to innovate optical nanotechnologies in health, life sciences, national security, energy, and manufacturing. Their mission is to (1) advance fundamental understanding and control of light-matter interactions at the nanoscale, (2) develop and apply optically active materials, devices and tools, (3) promote interdisciplinary trainings for students to understand and contribute to the multiple fields of engineering, science, and medicine.
