Li graduated from Shanghai Lu Xun High School in 1978. After finishing first in the national high school mathematics competition, he was exempt from the National College Entrance Examination and directly accepted by Fudan University. He earned his BS and MS in mathematics from Fudan in 1982 and 1984, respectively.[3] He earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1989, under the supervision of Shing-Tung Yau.[4]


Li was an invited speaker at the 1994 ICM. He received a Morningside Gold Medal of Mathematics in 2001 "for his contributions to the study of moduli spaces of vector bundles and to the theory of stable maps and invariants of Calabi-Yau manifolds."[5]
