Research Fellows

  Lufan Li, Ph.D.

Lufan Li, Ph.D. is a post-doctoral fellow at Hunan University, China. She obtained her B. Eng from Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University and University of Liverpool "First Class with Distinction" grade in 2013. She continued her study in University of Southampton, UK for MSc in civil engineering. In 2019, she returned to Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool university and University of Liverpool and finished her Ph.D study. Her previous research focus was characterizing the relationship between fibre distribution and mechanical properties of UHPFRC. Currently, she is working on carbonation and life cycle assessment.
