Xiaoyu “Rayne” Zheng directs the Advanced Manufacturing and Metamaterials Laboratory at University of California, Berkeley. His group develops the next-generation additive manufacturing processes, material designs and synthesis approaches to create multi-functional materials and all-in-one devices with controlled architectures, compositions and multi-scale features. Their work on ultralight, ultrastrong and resilient metamaterials was featured on MIT Technology Review Top 10 Innovations and on the Cover of Science Magazine and Nature Materials. Prior to his faculty career, Zheng received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Boston University with the Best Dissertation Award and subsequently worked as a mechanical engineer at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). Prof. Zheng has over 50 publications and multiple patents including multiple Science and Nature Materials articles. He has received multiple awards, including the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award, DARPA Director’s Fellow, Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, Air Force Young Investigator Award, Outstanding Assistant Professor Award, 3M Faculty Award, and Freeform Fabrication and Additive Manufacturing Excellence (FAME) Award.
