  Surface wetting phenomenon is of particular importance for applications of materials, it is also a central topics in physics, biology, material science, chemistry, geology, and nano science. Although the macroscopic wetting theory has been developed for centuries, it is still different to understand the wettability of surface on atomic level. We employed the molecular dynamics simulations based on classical force field, as well as the quantum calculations, combined to some experiments, to systemically study the mechanism of wetting. These specific studies on wetting greatly help us to understand the basic physics of wetting, and predict new materials in this field.

  Dr. Hui Li got his bachelor degree from Department of Intensive Instructions in Nanjing University in 2003, and received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Chemistry from Nanjing University in 2008. After that, he carried out his post-doctoral research at Physics Department of National University of Singapore (2008-2009) and Department of Chemistry in University of Nebraska Lincoln (2009-2012). In late 2012, he came back to China as an “Institute-BaiRen” associate professor in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He will join in the Beijing Advanced Innovation Centre of Soft Matter Science in 2017. Now, his research mainly focuses on first principles studies of interfacial water systems and novel 2D materials. Until now, he has published ~60 SCI papers, including high-index journals, such as Science, Nature Chemistry, PNAS etc.
