Dr Xiyue Peng specializes in electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems, focusing primarily on the functional materials and energy storage mechanisms for rechargeable Aluminum batteries and redox flow batteries.

Dr Xiyue Peng is currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Officer in Luo Group at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), University of Queensland (UQ), She is focusing on the development of iron flow battery technologies. From 2019 to 2023, she pursued her Doctorate degree at AIBN, UQ, under the guidance of Prof. Bin Luo and Prof. Lianzhou Wang. Her doctoral research revolved around the strategic design of functional materials, encompassing carbons, organics, and polymers, and their energy storage mechanisms for Aluminum batteries. Her work deeply explored the relationships between structure and performance for optimized energy storage solutions.


Dr Peng's industry-focused research project closely collaborates with Energy Storage Industries Asia Pacific, targeting large-scale energy storage solutions.
