ProfilePengfei Song is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mechatronics and Robotics. Pengfei received his B.Eng. degree from Jilin University, China in 2013 and Ph.D. degree from McGill University, Canada in 2018, both in mechanical engineering. Pengfei also visited Tsinghua University, China and University of Toronto, Canada in 2013 and 2018, respectively.
Pengfei’s research interests lie primarily in microsystems, which include 1) microfluidic biosensors and platforms and 2) automation and robotics at microscale. Pengfei published 22 SCI journals (by Nov of 2021, with an H-Index of 11), that include: Biosensors and Bioelectronics, Microsystems & Nanoengineering (a Nature Partner Journal), IEEE-TASE, IEEE/ASME - MEC, among others. Pengfei received several awards, to name a few: the Best Paper Award in Microfluidics Symposium at ASME 2014 International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition, the Best Conference Paper Award Finalist, and the Best Automation Paper Award Finalist at IEEE 2015 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA' 2015), and the Editor’s Pick Article Award and the Best Paper Award Finalist from AIP’s Biomicrofluidics. Pengfei is also the China Scholarship Council (CSC) award holder for his Ph.D. study in Canada.
Pengfei is the Associate Editor of IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, the Young Editor of a Science/AAAS partner journal, Cyborg and Bionic Systems, and the Program Committee Member of IEEE International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales (IEEE-MARSS, a flagship forum in automation and robotics at micro/nanoscale). Pengfei is also the reviewer for many highly recognized journals such as Engineering, MINE, IEEE Trans, among others.
课题小组常年欢迎动手能力强，对医工交叉有兴趣的同学：Our group is actively hiring research assistants at different levels, i.e., undergraduates (>=Year 2, determined, and strong motivation), master students, and doctoral students. We also have good records on UG students' applications to prestigious universities (2021: UPenn, Cornell, Duke, CMU, etc,. 2022: Berkeley, Columbia, Michigan, UCSD, etc,.)
