• Huanan Duan
    Associate Professor

    Dr. Huanan Duan (H factor = 19) is an Associate Professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). He obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees from Central South University of China, and his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. After 3-year stay as a Post-doc at Cornell University, he joined SJTU as an Associate Professor in 2013. 

    Dr. Duan’s research interest is at the interface of solid state chemistry and electrochemistry, two sub-disciplines inside materials chemistry. He is a leading battery scientist with abundant experience in designing and fabricating advanced materials for Li-ion batteries. In the past few years, Dr. Duan is dedicated to investigation of solid Li-ion electrolyte and nanostructured composite anode materials. Relevant work has been published in leading journals such as Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Journal of Power Sources, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, Journal of Material Chemistry A, etc. 

    He won SJTU SMC-Chen Xing Award for Excellence in Research in 2014.

  • Linsen Li
    Associate Professor

    Dr. Linsen Li is an associate professor at the Chemical Engineering department of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He obtained his PhD at University of Wisconsin-Madison under Prof. Song Jin in 2015. After working with Prof. Yet-Ming Chiang at MIT as a post-doc for two years, he joined SJTU on September, 2017. Linsen has been working on mate-rials and devices for energy storage and in situ characterization techniques based on syn-chrotron X-rays and electron microscopy. He has published 20 research papers and ap-plied for 5 patents (2 US, 1 PCT, 2 Chinese). He is the recipient of the China 1000plan award, Materials Research Society Gold Award for graduate student, and the Newton In-ternational Fellowship (declined). 

    The Li group primarily works on scalable synthesis of single-crystal Ni-rich layered ox-ide cathode materials, high energy-density lithium metal batteries, thin-film solid-state bat-teries, and new recycling techniques for electric vehicle battery cathode materials.
