Dr Li's research is focused on solving key challenges facing the pharmaceutical industry for improvements in production quality and reduction in manufacturing costs through utilising cutting edge analytical techniques to explore optimal formulations starting from a molecular level characterisation and up to bulk properties of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and excipients and application of real time process analysis techniques for process monitoring and control.
Dr Li's current research areas include using co-crystallisation approach to modification of APIs’ physical and chemical properties, development of online particle sizing techniques for control of crystallisation processes and development of online process models for control of fluidised bed granulation processes.
