Dr. Xuefei Li grew up in Tianjin, China and became interested in chemistry from middle school class demos of colorless-to-magenta acid-base titrations. She earned her B.S. in Chemistry from Jilin University in 2013. From 2013 to 2018, she worked with Dr. Ray Schaak at Pennsylvania State University on a metal-insulator transition vanadium dioxide material that exhibits a thermally activated optical transmittance change in the near-infrared region. From 2019 to 2022, she worked with Dr. Jianguo Mei at Purdue University on poly-propylenedioxythiophene (PProDOT)-based electrochromic materials and devices that undergo an electrochemically controlled color-change.


Dr. Li is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Georgia State University, where she focuses on electrochemically induced phase transformations for energy storage and conversion applications, and color change in nanomaterials for electrochromic. Her group's work is funded by ACS Petroleum Research Fund, DOE Basic Energy Sciences (through collaboration), and DOE Energy Earchshot Research Centers (through collaboration). She teaches Chem 4000/6000, Fundamentals of Chemical Analysis, and Chem 4850/6850, Bioanalytical Chemistry I.
