    Professor Chengdao Li
    PhD

    Director of Western Barley Genetics Alliance

    About me

    Professor Chengdao Li’s research focus is on improving barley breeding efficiency by integration of genomics breeding, molecular marker assisted selection, doubled haploid, mutation and conventional breeding.

    Professor Li received his Masters degree on Plant Genetics and Breeding at Zhejiang University in China. He received his PhD on Plant Molecular Genetics at the University of Adelaide in Australia. Professor Li successfully completed three years of postdoctoral research at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada.

    He is the Australian representative on the International Barley Genetics Symposium international organization committee, a member of International Barley Genome Sequencing Consortium and Chair of the 13th International Symposium on Pre-harvest Sprouting in Cereals.

    Between 2000-2014, Professor Li worked as a Principal Molecular Geneticist and Breeder for barley at the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (formerly DAFWA). He is one of the breeders for Baudin, Vlamingh, Hamelin, Roe, Hannan, Lockyer and Litmus.

    In 2019, Professor Li was awarded the 2019 Award for Excellence in Agricultural Research at the Australian Farmer of the Year awards.

    In 2021, Professor Li was announced as a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE).
