Jun Li has served as an associate editor for IEEE TNANO since 2007. He received Ph.D. in Chemistry from Princeton University in 1995 and did postdoctoral training at Cornell University in 1994 to 1997. He has been engaged in nanotechnology research at Molecular Imaging Co., the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (Singapore), NASA Ames Research Center, and Kansas State University. He has published over 140 journal articles, proceeding papers, book chapters, and is the co-inventor of over 26 nanotechnology patent applications. He edited a book on “Biosensors based on Nanomaterials and Devices” in 2014. Dr. Li is a recipient of 2005 Nano 50 Innovator Awards by Nanotech Briefs. His research interests are focused on developing new methods to integrate nanostructured materials, particularly one-dimensional nanowires and carbon nanotubes, into micro- and nano- devices. His previous work includes the development of a bottom-up processing solutions for carbon nanotube interconnect via, carbon nanofiber nanoelectrode array based biosensors, carbon nanofiber thermal interface materials, polypyrrole-coated carbon nanofiber arrays for neural electrical interface, nanoelectrode array based dielectrophoresis devices for pathogen capture and detection, three-dimensional architectured dye-sensitized solar cells, and vertical core-shell hybrid electrodes for electrical energy storage.
