Pengcheng Du

Ph.D., Lecturer


Pengcheng Du received a B.S. degree from Lanzhou University in 2009. He then was supervised by Prof. Peng Liu at Lanzhou University and performed research in the field of designing hollow sphere and application in drug delivery. He got his Ph.D. degree in the year of 2015. In the year of 2013, he moved to Xiong Gong’s group in Universtiy of Akron in the U.S.A. as a Joint Ph.D. to develop self-powered flexible device. He thereafter joint College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Lanzhou University. His current research interests include portable and wearable devices and design energy materials and application in aqueous clean energy devices.
