Presentation: Flow induced crystallization of polymers at real processing and service conditions
Liangbin Li received a B.S. (1994) from Sichuan Normal University and M.S. (1997) from Sichuan University in physics and a Ph.D. (2000) in polymer material processing from Sichuan University. From 2000 to 2004, he was a postdoctoral fellow in FOM-Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics and Technology University of Delft, The Netherlands. From 2004 to 2006, he worked as a materials scientist at Unilever Food and Health Research Institute. Since 2006, Dr. Li joined National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, University of Science and Technology of China as a full professor and started the Soft Matter Group. His primary research interests are polymer physics relevant to processing, such as flow-induced crystallization of polymer and stress induced deformation and phase transitions of crystalline polymers. Over his career, he has received a number of awards, including the Program for New Century Excellent Talents in the University of Ministry of Education of China (2007), the One Hundred Talents Program of The Chinese Academy of Sciences (2009), and the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (2013).
