Prof. Li joined University of Washington in 2006. Previously, he was an Assistant Professor at University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 2001 to 2005, a Postdoctoral Scholar at California Institute of Technology from 1999 to 2001, and a Postgraduate Researcher at University of California-San Diego from 1998 to 1999. He graduated with a Bachelor degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 1994 from Tsinghua University. Prof. Li's general research area is physical behaviors of materials. He is particularly interested in structure-property relationship of multifunctional materials. His current research is focused on electro-active polymers, ferroelectrics, ferromagnetism, and multiferroic materials. Funding support for Prof. Li's research comes from National Science Foundation, American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund and Nebraska Research Initiative, among others.
