Yongbing Li received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in materials processing in 1998 and 2001, respectively, at Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU), Xi'an, China, and then he received his Ph.D. degree in automotive engineering in 2005, at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), Shanghai, China. After graduation, he joined the Institute of Automotive Engineering of SJTU as an Assistant Professor, and he is currently an Associate Professor at the same institute, Deputy Director, and Core Participant of SJTU-GM Collaborative Research Laboratory in Advanced Manufacturing Processes. Li also serves as a Faculty Member of Shanghai Key Laboratory of Digital Autobody Engineering. Li focuses on advanced welding and joining of lightweight car body as his interest. To meet the big challenges of lightweight car body manufacturing, he has proposed magnetically controlled resistance spot welding, cold metal transfer (CMT) spot welding, electroplastic self-piercing riveting (EPSPR), friction self-piercing riveting (FSPR), and other novel joining processes to realize the joining of AHSS, UHSS, aluminum, and magnesium.
