We are thrilled to report that Guoyin Li has been promoted to Professor.

"I have been very fortunate to have excellent mentors, colleagues, research collaborators and also students who've helped me immensely since I started my career at UNSW", Professor Li said. 

"In particular, I wish to thank my mentor and frequent collaborator Jeya Jeyakumar for much constructive advice along the way, and also the former Head of School Bruce Henry and the current Head of School Adelle Coster for their support and encouragement".

A very big congratulations to Guoyin Li upon his promotion to Professor.
