Jiaqi (Jacky) Li


I'm a Research Scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and a principal investigator at the Atmospheric, Earth, & Energy Division. I was the Ernest O. Lawrence Fellow at Livermore before converting to a permanent position. 

I've published 20+ first/last-author peer-reviewed journal articles with total 2500+ citations regarding sustainable resilient civil infrastructure materials and carbon capture, utilization, & storage. I've secured over $10 million of credit in research funding as PI or co-PI.

I earned my Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2019. I received my M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Berkeley and B.E. in Civil Engineering from Beijing University of Technology.


My research interests: sustainable energy/civil infrastructure, engineered infrastructure materials and systems, and decarbonization that are critical to solving global environmental and justice challenges

  • Carbon capture, utilization & storage for natural and built environment

  • Renewable energy & clean fuels generation

  • Geochemistry, electrochemistry, & biochemistry

  • Sustainable infrastructure materials design and lifecycle assessment

  • Waste upcycling, critical resources recovery, & environmental justice

  • Machine-learning-aided advanced synchrotron multi-scale materials characterization

  • Micro-modular construction
