Personal profile


Hua Li received her PhD in Applied Minerals and Materials from Ian Wark Research Institute, University of South Australia. After graduation, she worked as a research associate and lecturer at the University of Newcastle.

Hua joined the School of Molecular Sciences, University of Western Australia as a research fellow in May 2017 and joined Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA) as the scanning probe microscopy (SPM) platform leader in 2019 to provide support for the SPM facilities.

Hua’s research interests centre on engineering liquid−solid and liquid-gas interfaces. She aims to apply fundamental findings at interfaces to industrial applications such as high-performance electrolytes, lubricants, and flue gas desulfurization and denitrification adsorbents. She uses extensive state-of-the-art facilities in CMCA, such as video-rate atomic force microscopy and external radiation scattering facilities such as ANSTO. Hua has collaborations with academics and industry partners in Australia and internationally.
