Adj A/Prof Peng has authored book chapters in Guide to Essentials in Emergency Medicine, published by McGraw Hill and teaches various EM topics including neuroimaging, emergency airway, procedural sedation and advanced cardiac life support.

Adj A/Prof Peng started out as a teacher to her juniors and peers. Her belief that leadership skills are just as important as specialty skills to prepare residents to be future-ready as a specialist led her to develop the year-long leadership program (RLDP) that is contextualised to local resources and strengths as well as aligning to the stage of one's career. Using her skills in personality and EQ profiling tools, she has coached residents to achieve optimal professional performance beyond academic knowledge and technical skills.

Adj A/Prof Peng has now shifted her focus to managing & supporting a team of EM specialists and leading them to excel individually & collectively in clinical, teaching and scholarly achievements, while at the same time advocating self-care and mental wellness.
