Associate Professor, Director of Digital Education Programme, Department of Educational Studies, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
Are you ready for the digital future?
Despite technological advances, higher education has yet to benefit from technological innovations. Covid-19 forced universities to embrace online and hybrid learning and teaching supported by virtual learning environments (VLEs) and other tools. Many teachers are questioning whether this “new normal” should stay or if we should return to pre-pandemic approaches. These questions have prompted me to reflect on how we can use technology to improve education.
I’m Na (Lina) Li, Senior Fellow of Advance HE, Associate Professor and Director of Digital Education Programme in the Department of Educational Studies within the Academy of Future Education at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU). As a researcher with over ten years of experience in higher education, I explore how technology can develop better education.
In one of my case studies, I interviewed teachers and managers from XJTLU to understand why they do not use technology in education. I have discovered that teachers only use technology in education when it has a clear purpose and benefit. For example, during Covid-19, teachers used technologies, such as Zoom, for distance teaching because the purpose and benefit were clear. However, before Covid-19, XJTLU implemented technology with similar functions, but teachers refused to use it.
My vision of research is to help universities consistently develop to adopt technology to provide quality education.

Principal Research Fellow at the Institute for Sustainable Resources, UCL
I am an experienced researcher on economic, finance and policy aspects of climate change and related energy issues. Currently, I am a Principal Research Fellow with a proleptic Academic Appointment at UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources (UCL ISR).
My work explores the cross-cutting role of finance in the global transition to a low-carbon economy, with a particular emphasis on avenues for integrating finance elements into climate policy design. In particular, I am applying complexity thinking and systemic approaches to the study of market structures for low-carbon finance, to identify points of policy intervention that lead to non-linear investment growth trajectories. In 2018, I was awarded an ERC starting grant (LINKS) focusing on the role of climate finance to meet the Paris goals (2019-2024).
I am also bringing research insights into policymaking and practical experience to bear upon academic studies. My research supported the work at several international public policy organizations, including the OECD, the Green Climate Fund and the World Bank. The impact of my contributions has been recognised through a few influential opinion pieces and coverage in top-tier media (e.g. Sustainable Views in the Financial Times, Bloomberg and Forbes).
I completed my PhD in Business Administration at Polytechnic University of Marche and University of California, Berkeley (co-tutorship of doctoral thesis) with a focus on energy financing policy.
My research interests include climate finance, networks and complexity approaches, policy evaluation methods, financing schemes, low-carbon investments and energy policy.
