Peng Cao

Dr. Peng Cao is an associate professor and Deputy Head Academic at the University of Auckland. He serves on the Editorial Board of the “Advance Materials Engineering”, “Special Casting” and “Nonferrous Alloys” journals, as well as serving as the Academic Editor for “Metals”. Dr. Cao’s research interests include light alloy; powder technologies, glass-ceramics, energy-related materials. His current research focuses on: metal injection moulding of titanium and titanium alloys; metal powder sintering, in particular Ti and NiTi; surface modification of titanium alloys, glass-ceramic dental materials, solid-state electrolyte for litihium ion battery and high-capacity silicon anode for lithium battery.

Affiliations and Expertise

Associate Professor, University of Auckland, New Zeland

Muhammad Hayat

Dr Hayat received his master’s degree in Materials Science from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden in 2012 with a thesis on “Electric field Assisted Sintering of Metal Oxides”, a novel fabrication method for ceramics. In the work related to his PhD study, he extensively studied water-soluble binder systems for titanium metal injection moulding and reported some interesting findings. These new findings shed new insight on the use of such binders in metal injection moulding industry and therefore has industrial applications. In addition, a new binder system was developed to reduce impurity uptake during processing. Currently, he is working at the University of Auckland as a Research Fellow under the mentoring of A/Prof Peng Cao. Dr Hayat is one of the key researchers in the titanium powder metallurgy research programme and also mentors other postgraduates in the programme.
