About Li Wei:

Born in October 1973, Professor of Northwest University. In 1996, he graduated from Chang'an University with a bachelor's degree in geology; in 2001-2004, he obtained a master's degree in the Department of geology of Northwest University; in 2004-2007, he obtained a doctor's degree in structural geology from the Chinese Academy of Geosciences. From August 2012 to August 2013, visiting scholar of Western University of Canada.

Mainly engaged in the study of orogenic belt structure and continental structure. Taking the Qinling, Qilian and Tianshan orogenic belts as research bases and the structural deformation analysis of orogenic belts as research basis, this paper explains and constrains the structural evolution of orogenic belts and studies the dynamics of structural deformation. He has successively been responsible for one youth fund and two general projects of NSFC.

In recent years, he has published papers as the first and corresponding author:
