Qi Li holds a BS in earth sciences with diploma of minor programme on computer science from Nanjing University, China (1995), and in 1998 he received a MS in hydrogeology and engineering geology from the same University. In 2004, he received a Ph.D. in civil engineering from Ibaraki University, Japan. Before joining the faculty of the Institute of Rock and Soil Mechanics (IRSM), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Wuhan, China, he has been a member of Geological Survey of Japan, Tsukuba, from 2005 to 2010. Dr. Li is now the Professor of CCS Research Group at IRSM; he is a geoscientist with expertise in the fields of hydrogeology and engineering mechanics. The focus of Prof. Li’s research is understanding and using laboratory and numerical tools to design novel subsurface disposal processes and site monitoring systems on different temporal and spatial scales. His research is very interdisciplinary in nature and brings together the fields of hydrogeology, environmental geotechnics, mathematical mechanics, resevoir engineering and remote sensing. His researches in the CCS/AGI field mainly include mechanical stability of disposal reservoirs, multiphase flow, coupled processes, and risk monitoring. He is an editorial member of Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, International Journal of Geosciences, Natural Resources, Rock and Soil Mechanics (Chinese Journal), Climate Change Research Letters (Chinese Journal). He is also a member of China Delegate of CSLF TF and ISO TC265.
