Biography

Dr. Li’s research interest is to explore the structure-property-processing relationships in structural metals and materials, with particular emphasis on size effect, structural disorder, and their roles on mechanical properties. Her research utilizes computational simulations and analytical theories to establish the spatial and temporal connections between microscopic atomic processes and macroscopic material performance, particularly for nanostructured metals, metallic glasses and grain boundary networks.
