Lu Li received his B.Eng and M. Eng from Tsinghua University, China, and his Ph.D from the Katholiek Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. After four years of doctoral study and two years of post-doctoral work at KUL, he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore in 1991. Dr. Lu was promoted to Full Professor in 2004 and is still heavily involved in the research of functional materials, mainly in two directions; i) materials for Li-ion rechargeable batteries which include traditional bulk batteries and all-solid-state batteries, and supercapacitors, and ii) piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials. He has published over 300 papers in international journals and 3 monographs. He has awarded millions dollars in his research funding in the past 20 years. Dr. Lu is the Editor-in-Chief of Functional Materials Letters (World Scientific Publisher), Associate Editor of Materials Technology (Maney Publisher) particularly in charge of functional materials, and member of Editorial Board of Scientific Report (Nature Publishers) in charge of energy storage materials. Dr. Lu is also Guest Professor of Zhejiang University, China and Honoria Professor, Queensland University, Australia.
