Liangchun Li received his B.S. degree and M.S. degree from Tongji University in 2003 and 2006. He obtained his Ph.D degree in 2009 at Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICCAS), China. He then spent 2009-2012 as a special postdoctoral researcher cooperated with Prof. Kohei Tamao at RIKEN, Japan. In 2012, he joined the group of Prof. S. Kitagawa in Kyoto University and in 2013 he obtained JSPS fellowship. After his postdoc researches he became a Distinguished Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study & School of Chemical Science and Engineering, Tongji University, Shanghai, China in 2016.
