Prof Zheng-Xiang Li

Professor Li’s research involves how Earth evolved and how it works, with research interests including palaeomagnetism, regional (Australia and Asia) to global tectonics, and geodynamics. He received his BSc in seismological geology from Peking University in 1982, and a PhD on palaeomagnetism and tectonics from Macquarie University in 1989. During his time at the University of Western Australia from 1990 until 2006, he received an ARC QEII Fellowship, was a Co-Leader of the successful UNESCI-IUGS sponsored IGCP
project No. 440, acted as the Deputy Director of the ARC-funded Tectonics Special Research Centre, and rose to Senior Principle Research Fellow/Professor.
Li joined Curtin University in 2007. He is currently a Co-Leader of IGCP project No. 648 (http://geodynamics.curtin.edu.au), a Co-Director of the Australia-China Joint Research Centre for Tectonics and Earth Resources (http://tectonics.curtin.edu.au/), and a key member of The Institute for Geoscience Research (http://tiger.curtin.edu.au/) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Core to Crust Fluid Systems (http://www.ccfs.mq.edu.au/Participants/Participants.html). He is a Thomas Reuters Highly Cited Researcher (2014 & 2015), and an elected Fellow of the Geological Society of America. He was awarded an ARC Australian Laureate Fellowship in 2015.
