Peng Chengzhi, born in 1976, holds several professional positions: professor and doctoral supervisor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), chief scientist of QuantumCTek Co Ltd, and chief engineer of the scientific application system of Micius, the world's first quantum communication satellite.
Peng began to participate in the research of quantum science and technology in 2003. Since then, he has taken part in the whole process of the design of the quantum satellite "Micius", witnessing the development of China in the fields of quantum communication, quantum computing and others.
Since the USTC and QuantumCTek Co Ltd are based in Hefei, while the Shanghai Institute for Advance Studies of USTC and Shanghai Research Center for Quantum Science are located in Shanghai, Peng often travels between the two cities for work and living.
The Yangtze River Delta integration drives the flows of talents and technologies, and provides impetus for the development of science and technology. Taking advantages of the Yangtze River Delta integration, Peng and his team are making full efforts to prepare for the launch of a new quantum satellite.
