Dr. Shuhui Li received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Southwest Jiaotong University, Chengdu, China, in 1983 and 1988, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX, USA, in 1999. He was with the School of Electrical Engineering, Southwest Jiaotong University, from 1988 to 1995, where his fields of research interest included electrified railways, power electronics, power systems, and power system harmonics.

From 1995 to 1999, he was engaged in research on wind power, artificial neural networks, and applications of massively parallel processing. He joined Texas A&M University, Kingsville, TX, USA, as an Assistant Professor, in 1999, and an Associate Professor in 2003.

He joined the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL, USA, as an Associate Professor, in 2006. He is a Voting Member of the IEEE 2800, P2030, 2418.5, and P2030.12 working groups, involving the IEEE standardization work on Interconnection and Interoperability of Inverter-Based Resources, Smart Grid Interoperability, Blockchain in Energy, and Microgrid Protection Systems.

His current research interests include renewable energy systems, power electronics, power systems, electric machines and drives, and applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning in power and energy systems. Dr. Li is a senior member of IEEE and a senior member of the National Academy of Inventors.
