Zeheng is a CERC Fellow, appointed through the Impossible Without You campaign. He earned his PhD in Si quantum computing devices from CQC2T, UNSW, and also has significant experience in III-V semiconductor devices, semiconductor physics and modeling, machine learning, and TCAD simulations. Zeheng has published over 30 scientific papers in top-tier venues, including Nature, Advanced Materials (cover article), Energy & Environmental Science, IEEE Electron Device Letters, and IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices, as well as flagship conferences such as IEEE IEDM and IEEE ISPSD.

Zeheng's expertise is recognized by his service as an editorial position for Micromachines (IF3.5) and Applied Research (Wiley). He is also an active reviewer for many leading journals published by IEEE, IET, IEICE, Wiley, Springer, Elsevier, and IOP. He currently conducts more than 20 papers' peer-review for SCI-inexed journals per year. His open-source online service for semiconductor fabrication has been used by over 300 researchers worldwide. Additionally, he invented two patents in the field of semiconductor devices.

Zeheng's current research interests include quantum sensing, quantum artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence for science (AI4Science, particularly in materials, electronics, and medicines), and micro/nano manufacturing/fabrication.
