Zheng Li (Jining, China). Zheng got a bachelor degree in Applied Chemistry specialized in energetic materials in Anhui University of Science and Technology in 2010 and a master from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2012. From 2012 - 2016 he finalised a Ph.D. in Melbourne University (Australia) focusing on separations by solvent extraction, particularly the thermodynamics of phase equilibrium in multi-component systems. Before his Graduation, he worked in CSIRO for three months as a visiting scientist, involved in separations of alkali metals by solvent extraction. In 2016, he went to Qinghai University (China) to work as a leader of a small research group to develop new processes for lithium separation from magnesium rich brines. From May 2017, he joined the lab for Inorganic Chemistry at KU Leuven to develop non-aqueous solvent extraction systems for separations of critical metals.
