About the speaker
Prof Di Li received his PhD in Astrophysics from Cornell University in 2002. He then joined the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics as an astronomer, before he moved to the California Institute of Technology to become a National Research Council Fellow in 2005. In 2012, he was appointed the Chief Scientist and Professor of the Radio Astronomy Division in the National Astronomical Observatories of China, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Prof Li’s research focuses on interstellar medium, star formation, radio instrumentation and pulsar search. He pioneered several observing and data analysis techniques, including HI narrow self-absorption technique and a new inversion solution to the dust temperature distribution. These techniques facilitate important measurements of star forming regions, such as the formation time scale.
