ABOUT Shululu (Hui Li)

Shululu (Hui Li) is a children's book author/illustrator. She became an apprentice of Chinese traditional calligraphy since four and is ranked 9 dan (the highest rank). She had developed a strong interest of how particles/people interacting by practicing this art of balancing.

She received a PhD Degree from the University of Chicago. She had published on world’s leading science journals, including Science and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (with a list of selected publications here). With a profound understanding of the building particles of the universe, she wanted to explore more of the world with pens and brushes, and have positive influence on people’s daily lives. She moved to NYC to pursue this dream. She is now devoted to writing and illustrating. She had illustrated a series of science picture books for children. The book dummies she wrote won the 2018 Writing with the Stars Contest in the author/illustrator category. Her apartment is full of succulent plants.
