  • Professor Can Li received his Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 1989, and he joined the same institute and was promoted to full professor in 1993. He did postdoctoral research on catalysis and UV Raman spectroscopy at Northwestern University and was visiting professor at Lehigh University, the University of Liverpool, and The Queensland University, and he was awarded the JSPS Professor at Waseda University, Tokyo University of Technology, and Hokkaido University. He was an invited professor at Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris VI. He was elected as a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2003, a member of the Academy of Science for Developing Countries (TWAS) in 2005, a foreign member of Academia Europea in 2008, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2008. He was the President of the International Association of Catalysis Societies (2008−2012). Currently, he is the director of the Dalian National Laboratory for Clean Energy (DNL) and is serving as President of the Asia-Pacific Association of Catalysis Societies. Among the awards and honours recognising his research are the prestigious International Catalysis Award, the National Natural Science Prize, the Ho Leung Ho Lee Prize (Hong Kong), and the National Petrochemical Prize. Over the last decade, his research has significantly contributed to the production of solar fuels via photocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic water splitting and CO2 reduction. He has been the Editor-in-Chief of Chinese Journal of Catalysis since 2014, and is an associate editor of Chemical Communication. He has more than 600 peer-reviewed papers with over 13 000 citations, an H-index ~ 60, ~ 60 granted patents and over 70 plenary and keynote lectures at international conferences.
