Jun Li has served as an associate editor (2007-2014) and senior editor (2015-present) for IEEE TNANO. He received Ph.D. in Chemistry from Princeton University in 1995 and had postdoctoral training at Cornell University in 1994 to 1997. He has engaged in nanotechnology research at Molecular Imaging Co., the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (Singapore), NASA Ames Research Center, and Kansas State University (since 2007). He is currently a full professor at Kansas State University. He has published over 180 journal articles, proceeding papers and book chapters, and is the co-inventor of over 30 nanotechnology patent applications (14 issued). He co-edited a book on “Biosensors based on Nanomaterials and Devices” in 2014. he is a recipient of 2005 Nano 50 Innovator Awards by Nanotech Briefs and was elected as 2019 class of fellow of National Academy of Inventors. His research interests are focused on developing new methods to integrate nanostructured materials, particularly nanostructured carbon materials, metal oxides, metal sulfides and plasmonic nanoparticles, into micro- and nano- devices. His work includes the development of core-shell hybrid electrodes for electrical energy storage, three-dimensional architectured solar cells, nanostructured electrochemical biosensors, nanoelectrode array based dielectrophoresis devices for microbe capture and detection, bottom-up processing for carbon nanotube interconnects, carbon nanofiber thermal interface materials, and carbon nanofiber array based neural electrical interface.
