PhD Student

Zhipeng graduated in 2022 from Imperial College London with a MEng in Materials Science and Engineering. For her master’s research project, she worked to develop chitosan-based scaffolds for applications in wound healing. In this time, she gained experience in techniques such as biomaterials characterisation and electrospinning. Zhipeng joined the Armstrong Group in October 2022 as a PhD student through the Chinese Scholarship Council – University of Bristol scheme. She is working in collaboration with local clinicians to develop a new class of regenerative biomaterials for wound healing applications.
