Professor Hui Li, anthropologist on East Asia, gained bachelor and PhD degrees from Fudan University School of Life Sciences (1996-2005). After finishing postdoctoral training and research associate's work at Yale University in 2009, he started associate research professor and then became professor of human biology and anthropology at School of Life Sciences, Fudan University.
Now, Professor Li is appointed as the dean of MOE Key Laboratory of Contemporary Anthropology, dean of Fudan-Datong Institute of Chinese Origin, and academician of Asian Academy of Humanity and Nature (Macao). He is also trustee of the China Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences, the Chinese Anthropological Society, and Executive Vice-President of Shanghai Society of Anthropology.
Professor Li is major in molecular anthropology to study the origin of human populations and civilizations in East Asia. He demonstrated that East Asians originated in two migration waves from Africa. The Chinese Civilization was stimulated by the domestications of rice in the South and millet in the North. Three Sovereigns in early time of Neolithic Age were proved to be ancestors of half present Chinese males, whose mausoleums were even found. Human meridians of Chinese medicine circulating body fluid were photographed.
He published over 300 papers in SCIENCE, NATURE, PNAS, etc. and several books, including "Human Origin and Migration", "Y Chromosome and Diversification of East Asians", "Languages and Genes in Northwestern China and Adjacent Regions", "You Who Came from Apes", "Dônđäc: a Language with the Largest Vowel Inventory in the World", "Pictorial Flora of Fudan", "Ethnic History of Greater Canton", "Who We Are", "Yim-Yaŋ Canon of Tea", "Teas for Solar Terms", "Tao Te Ching: restored ancient text". He also translated the famous genetic story books like "The Seven Daughters of Eva", "My Beautiful Genome". Moreover, he has published many poetry anthologies, including "A Disengaged and Helpless Soul", "Zichen Chansons", "Tea Polyword", "Millet Rain", etc.
A report of Professor LI and his research of historical anthropology titled "Bringing Legends to Life" was published in SCIENCE intensively in 2016.
