Prof. Yongjin LI (PhD)  e-mail: yongjin-li@hznu.edu.cn

Prof Yongjin Li, received his PhD degree in 2002 from Shanghai Jiaotong University of China. He was a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), JAPAN from 2002 to 2003, and then became a researcher (tenured in 2007) at the AIST. In 2011, he moved to Hangzhou Normal University, China, as a full professor. He was appointed as a “Qianjiang Scholar” and “Zhejiang Thousand Talents” in 2012. He is now the head of the department of polymer science at Hangzhou Normal University.

Prof. Li’s research work deals with the structure control and the structure-property relationship of multi-component polymers, including polymer alloys and polymer composites. He is known for the development of high shear processing technologies for multicomponent polymers. He is also recognized for his works in reactive polymer processing especially in reactive compatibilization of immiscible polymer blends by reactive comb polymers and reactive nanoparticles. He has very recently also focused on polymer irradiation processing.

Prof. Li has published more than 120 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and is a (co-)author of 6 book chapters. His papers have been cited more than 3400 times with H-index of 32. He has given over 30 plenary/keynote/invited lectures in international conferences. He has filed 80 Chinese, Japanese, and US patents, of which 48 (25 Chinese, 4 US and 19 Japanese) are already authorized. In 2010, he received the “Tsukuba Bio & Chemistry Award” (with Dr. Hiroshi Shimizu) in Japan. In 2017, he received “Innovation Young Scientist in Polymer Processing of China” award. In 2018, he received the “Feng Xinde Polymer Price”. In 2019, he received the “Morand Lambla” award of PPS for his achievement and potential for creativity in the science and technology of polymer processing.
