Yan Li

Dr. Yan Li’s research focuses on the microsystems with the integration of multiple components (i.e., electrical, electrochemical, fluid) for biomedical applications. In 2015, Yan joined in the university of British Columbia as a postdoctoral research fellow and is currently focusing on piezoelectric inkjet systems for cell printing, microfluidic graphene systems for biosensing as well as graphene neural interfaces. Yan received his B.S. degree from Xidian University (Xi’an, China) and M.Eng. degree from Peking University (Beijing, China); and the Ph.D. degree from IMEC & KU Leuven-University of Leuven (Leuven, Belgium) in 2015, where he developed a microfluidic system for energy harvesting and biosensing. Before UBC, he also worked in the retinal prosthesis project in Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Science (Shenzhen, China).
