The Li lab seeks to develop new strategies for bioenergy and biomedical applications at the interface of inorganic chemistry and biology. Our major area of research interest is redox reactions catalyzed or promoted by transition metal complexes that mimic or are inspired by enzymatic actives sites; we also aim to develop and apply X-ray spectroscopic toolkit to elucidate mechanisms of these reactions. We have several on-going projects at the moment.


We are always looking for graduate and undergraduate students who are self-motivated. 

For graduate candidates: please apply directly to the graduate program of NMSU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Please follow the instructions here http://chemistry.nmsu.edu/admissions/

For undergraduate students currently enrolled in NMSU: please directly contact Dr. Li.
