Jianzhong Li has been an active researcher as professor at Northeastern University (Shenyang, China). He received his PhD (2005), Master (2002) and BSc degree (2000) in metallurgy from Northeastern University (Shenyang, China). Following his PhD, Jianzhong Li worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Baosteel Co., Ltd (2007-2009), and then served as a visiting researcher at University of Wollongong (2012-2013, Wollongong, Australia). His research over the past 27 years mainly focused on three areas: electrochemistry in aqueous solutions, metal surface coating technology, and gas sensing materials and physical chemistry. In the field of electrochemistry in aqueous solutions, his research investigates various aspects of chemical reactions and processes occurring in water-based systems, including studying the behavior of ions, electrochemical reactions, and related phenomena. Jianzhong Li’s work in metal surface coating technology involves developing and improving techniques for coating metal surfaces with protective layers. These coatings aim to enhance the durability, corrosion resistance, and other properties of metal materials. His research on gas sensing materials and physical chemistry revolves around the development and characterization of materials used in gas sensors. This includes explore novel materials by studying their chemical and physical properties, and evaluating their performance in detecting and measuring different gases. His research is conducted through research partnerships from University of Wollongong, Aalto University, The University of Queensland, and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, etc. He has co-authored over 100 journal and conference papers, 2 books, and is a co-inventor on 30 patent applications.
