Research Profile

Tao Li, Professor of Space physics.
PhD in Physics, Colorado State University, 2005

Prof Li did his postdoctoral research in the NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratory at California Institute of Technology between 2006 and 2008. he was selected as a member of CAS Hundred Talents Program in 2009 and joined the school of Earth and Space Sciences since then. His research currently focuses on the middle and upper atmospheric dynamics, and development of high spectral-resolution lidar system and other passive optical remote sensing instruments.He already published more than 40 SCI papers on the international renowned journals.
