Dr. Haiyan Li is currently focusing on the development of semiconductor nanostructure-based electrical devices for green energy as well as the advancement of nanoparticale-based vaccines against cancer. He learned analytical chemistry and organic chemistry in his undergraduate work. Then he researched on catalytic synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotube array and earned a master’s degree in physical chemistry. Later, he successfully modulated the electrical and mechanical properties of epoxy resins using functionalized SiO2 nanoaprticles. After he received his PhD in microelectronics and solid state electronics, he worked as an assistant professor for two years in Tianjin University. During this time, his research focused on the fabrication of carbon nanotube based flat display (Co-PI, supported by TSTC of China) and micro-machining of nanostructures using Femtosecond lasers (PI, supported by NSF of China).
