Dr. Jiang Li, an occupant of Samuel Paul Massie Chair of Excellence at Morgan State University, endorsed by US Department of Energy since 2009. Dr. Li has forty years of research and teaching experiences. He worked fifteen years as a Geoscientist for Chinese Academy of Sciences, including six-year service as the Director of the world-class Geomechanics Lab. Dr. Li worked for six years in the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology before he came to Morgan State University (MSU). Since 1996, Dr. Li has been working at MSU as a faculty member and is currently a professor of the Department of Civil Engineering, where he also serves as a Director of the Geotechnical Research Lab.
Dr. Li is a Professional Engineer (P.E.) licensed by the Maryland PE Board; a Professional Hydrogeologist (P.HG) certified by American Institute of Hydrology; a Deplomate of Water Resource Engineers (D.WRE) certified by American Water Academy; an ASCE Fellow Member (ASCE.F) honored by American Society of Civil Engineers.

Dr. Li's areas of research include Applied Mathematics, Hydrogeology and Geomechanics (aquifer mechanics, soil and rock mechanics, and groundwater hydraulics). Interests of research in land movement have taken him to Nepal, China, Italy, Canada, Sweden, Mexico, and the Netherlands as well as throughout the United States. Dr. Li is recognized nationally and internationally as a leading authority in theoretical aquifer mechanics and in modeling and prediction of dynamic and transient land movement caused by various forces such as hydraulic force caused by subsurface fluids (water, oil and gas) withdrawal, gravitational force caused by artificial loading and seismic forces caused by earthquakes. His research has been conducted in collaboration with NASA, DOT, DOE, USGS, CAS, CGS, NJU, TX A&M, PSU, etc.
Dr. Li serves, as a committee chair or a committee member, in more than fourteen national and international professional societies, such as ASCE, AWRA, AIH, etc. He has received a number of honors and awards, including the Member of Proposal Reviewing Panel of NSF, the International Academic Examiner of Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, the Distinguished Geoscientist in four institutes of Chinese Academy of Sciences and three awards from Chinese Academy of Sciences.
