At NREL Since: 

Haowei Peng received his Ph.D. from the Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, in 2009. Following that, Dr. Peng moved to Northwestern University and Professor Arthur J. Freeman’s group for two years, working on thermoelectric materials and complicated oxides. Dr. Peng joined NREL as a postdoctoral researcher in June 2011, working on material design via first-principles calculations.

Research Interests 

  • Defects in semiconductors
  • Photovoltaic materials
  • Thermoelectric materials and transport properties
