Personal statement

Fan Li, professor and doctoral supervisor, received his B.S. in Physical Chemistry in Metallurgy from the University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) in 1996. He received his M.E. in Chemical Technology from Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IPE, CAS). He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden in 2007, and his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in Metallurgy from the University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) in 2008. He is a full Professor at Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering in Beijing University of Technology (BJUT). Dr. Li focuses on electrochemical properties of the transition metal oxides with mixed valence states loaded Nobel metals catalyst, and applied them in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell. The preparation and characterization of nano-structured electro-catalyst with low content noble metals is his main study field.
