Qing Li received a B.E. from Tsinghua University in 2006 and a Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2013. His doctoral research was supervised by Ali Adibi and focused on developing optical signal processing technologies in both silicon and silicon nitride platforms. During 2013-2018, he worked as a CNST/UMD postdoctoral researcher in National Institute of Standards and Technology. His work with Kartik Srinivasan at NIST developed techniques for chip-scale quantum frequency conversion, octave-spanning microresonator frequency combs for optical frequency synthesis, and photonic interfaces for interrogating rubidium atomic systems. For his work, Qing Li has received the Outstanding Graduate Student (Colonel Oscar P. Cleaver) Award and Sigma Xi Best Ph.D. Thesis Award from Georgia Institute of Technology. He also won the Sigma Xi Most Outstanding Poster in Modeling, Simulation, and Physics in NIST.
