Dr. Lan Li joined the faculty of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Boise State University in 2012. She has a Ph.D. in Nanomaterials and an M.Phil. in Microelectronic Engineering and Semiconductor Physics, both from the University of Cambridge. Her earlier education includes a B.S. in Electronics and a Certificate in Study and Communication from the University of Central Lancashire, and a Certificate in Japanese from the University of Cambridge. Before coming to Boise State, Dr. Li was a NIST-ARRA senior fellow in the Material Measurement Lab at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and an assistant professor at the Department of Biological Science and Center for Materials Informatics at Kent State University. Her current research interests include the theoretical and computational studies of materials by design for electronics, energy and sustainability applications, and teaming researchers with interdisciplinary backgrounds to develop new approaches to advance materials research. Dr. Li is an active member of The Mineral, Metals and Materials Society, the American Chemical Society, and the Materials Research Society. She is presently a member of TMS ICME (Integrated Computational Materials Engineering) and Edcuation committees, and has served as a symposium/workshop/roundtable organizer and chair for professional meetings and conferences.
