Zhendong Li works with Professor Garnet Chan at Princeton University. He obtained his B.Sc. in Chemistry and Mathematics at the Peking University, China, in 2009. He received his Ph.D. at the Peking University in quantum chemistry in 2014 under the supervision of Professor Wenjian Liu.
His research has focused on the developments of theoretical methods for excited states of open-shell molecules, relativistic Hamiltonians for spin-dependent properties and symbolic algebra for tensor expressions. His current interests lie in the development of new numerical methods for the many electron problem in quantum chemistry.
