Liming Peng (born in 1972) serves as a Deputy Director of the National Engineering Research Center for Light Alloy Net Forming (NERC-LAF) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. Prior to his arrival to SJTU as a Postdoc in material science and engineering in 2000, he earned his B.A. degree in material engineering at SJTU (1994) and Ph.D. degree from Shanghai University, China (2000). He has become a Faculty of SJTU since 2002, and his research interests focus on magnesium-based materials science and engineering, where he systemically investigated the microstructure, mechanical properties, and strengthening mechanism of Mg-RE based alloy and developed several high performance magnesium alloys. Also he developed a several novel casting processes for Mg alloys, such as dual-furnace low pressure permanent casting for car wheels and precise low pressure sand casting for engine cradles. He has published more than 140 papers and applied for 28 patents. He has received a number of awards, including the 12th China Excellent Young Scientist Award, a 2010 Shanghai Science and Technology Invention Award (First Prize), a 2007 Shanghai Science and Technology Invention Award (First Prize), and a 2003 National Science and Technology Progress Award. He serves as a Member of several scientific societies, including the International Materials Research Society, the Chinese Materials Research Society, and the TMS Magnesium Technology Committee.
