Bio: Wei Li is a professor and lab director at GPL Photonics Laboratory, Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Before joining CIOMP, Wei Li did his Ph.D. and postdoc at Vanderbilt University and Stanford University, respectively. His research interests include thermal photonics, nanophotonics, and their applications in next-generation energy and information technologies. His work has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Nature Photonics, Nature Nanotechnology, and Nature Communications. He is a Highly Cited Researcher (Clarivate, 2023) and has been awarded MIT Technology Review Innovator Under 35 – TR35 (Asia Pacific). 

Wei Li serves as the Associate Editor for npj Nanophotonics, SPIE Spotlight and guest editor for Nanophotonics. He also serves as reviewers for Science, Nature Electronics, Nature Sustainability, Nature Communications, PNAS, Joule, Advanced Materials and many other journals. He is a member of IEEE (senior), Optica, SPIE and COS. He also serves as the founding faculty advisor of IEEE Student Chapter and the faculty co-advisor of the Optica Student Chapter at CIOMP, CAS.
