About me

Dr. Yuanyuan Li, Associate Professor in the Department of Fibre and Polymer. She received her Ph.D. in 2014 from Nanjing Forestry University. During her Ph.D. study, she visited the University of Maryland, USA from 2012 to 2014. Prior to joining KTH as an Assistant Professor in 2020, she was a postdoc in KTH from 2015 and was promoted to Researcher in 2017. She got her docentship in 2021 in “Fiber and Polymer Science towards Bio-based Composites”. In 2024, she was promoted to Associate Professor. Dr Li is currently the Head of Biocomposites Division.

Yuanyuan’s main research focuses on wood nanoscience and nanotechnology development. The idea is advanced cellulosic nanomaterials composites design, not by the common bottom-up approach exemplified by nanocellulose, but by eco-friendly top-down approaches starting with wood. The hierarchical structure and porosity as well as existing cellulose nanofibril orientation in wood are utilized.
