Xide Li acts as a Professor at the Department of Engineering Mechanics at Tsinghua University, China. He received his B.S. degree from the Department of Physics from Northwest University at Xi’an in 1986 and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in engineering mechanics in 1989 and in mechanical engineering in 1992, respectively, from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China. From 1993 to 1998, he acted as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and an Associate Professor at University of Science and Technology of China. He was a guest researcher at Lulea University of Technology in Sweden in 1997 and Hong Kong University in 2000 and 2002, respectively. He joined Tsinghua University in 1999. Since 2006, he has been a Member of a Council of Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and the Member of OSA. His current research fields include solid experimental mechanics, micro/nanomechanics, mechanics of aerospace and engineering safety integrity, and optical metrology. His research interests include mechanical properties of structures, devices, and thin films at micro/nanoscale; NDT/NDE of materials and structures, laser, and optical metrology (holographic interferometry, speckle interferometry, Moiré method, digital correlation technique, phase shifting measurement, and computerized tomography), mechanics of smart materials and aerospace structures, instruments, and sensors. He has edited a special issue of microoptical metrology in China in the Journal of Optics and Lasers in Engineering (2005) and authored and coauthored more than 140 scientific and technical papers.
