Assoc Prof Li Lin

Dr. Li received the Bachelor degree in Polymer Engineering from Beijing Institute of Chemical Technology in 1982, the Master and PhD degrees in Polymer Science from Kyoto University in 1986 and 1989 respectively. During the period from 1989 to 1999, he worked as a R&D scientist, research fellow, and senior scientist at several industrial and academic laboratories in Japan and Canada. He did his postdoctoral research in the group of Professor Mitchell A Winnik in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto, Canada.

In August 1999, Dr. Li joined Nanyang Technological University as an Associate Professor.

Since 2002, Dr. Li has served as a Regional Editor for Journal of the Society of Rheology Japan.
