Prof. Dr. Qiang Li graduated from Dept. of Material Science & Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1985, and received his Ph.D in the State Key Laboratory of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing, Wuhan University of Technology in 1993. He moved to the Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University, as a full professor in materials chemistry, in 2000, from Wuhan University of Technology, where he ever worked as an associate professor and professor in materials science since his graduation. His research interests were mainly focused on crystal materials & crystal growth, crystallology, ferroelectric (anti-ferroelectric) materials and related functional materials synthesis etc. He was the Senior Member of the Chinese Materials Research Society(C-MRS) Youth Branch and the Member of the Chinese Ceramic Society Crystal Growth & Materials Branch .
