Shuwen Li

Ph.D., Lecturer


Shuwen Li was born in the City of Chifeng in January, 1985. He received a B.S. degree from Lanzhou University in 2009, and then joined Prof. Jiantai Ma’s group in the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering of this university as a graduate student and performed research in the field of carbon-based materials and Electrocatalysis. He got his Doctor degree of physical chemistry in the year of 2014 and chose to stay here for work as a lecturer until now. In 2018, he became one the members of Prof. Can Li’s research team. His current research interests include Electrocatalysis (fuel cells, electrolysis of water) and Photocatalysis (photodegradation) and he has already published a number of SCI papers as first author or corresponding author on Journal of CatalysisChemistry-A European JournalJournal of Materials Chemistry AJournal of Power SourcesCarbonCatalysis Science & TechnologyJournal of Hazardous MaterialsACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering.
