Zhihui Cheng (IntlAssoc)

Zhihui Cheng is a Research Associate working in the Alternative Computing Group in the Nanoscale Device Characterization Division of the Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML). He received his Ph.D. at Duke University in Electrical and Computer Engineering. His expertise includes nanoelectronic device fabrication and characterization based on low-dimensional nanomaterials from carbon nanotubes to 2D materials. His current research projects involve quantum transport characterization for novel nanomaterials including twisted 2D materials. He is also interested in nanoscale materials and devices for quantum information and sensing applications.
