CV

Dr. Yuelong Li received his PhD at Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in March of 2012, and then he moved to University of California-San Diego (UCSD) for his first postdoc until June of 2014. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Multifunctional Optical Materials (http://mom.icmse.csic.es) in the Institute of Materials Science of Seville with financial support from Marie Curie International Incomming Fellowship from September of 2014. His main activities are devoted to the synthesis and characterization of novel nanomaterials for their application in photovoltaics, especially flexible type dye solar cells on plastic or metalic substrates. He has completed or be involved in numerous research projects financed by both national and private companies. He is author of more than 16 peer-reviewed publications, inventor of 3 internationalized patents, and numerous scientific presentations in international conferences.
