Written By: Caitlin Scott



Ying Li will join the Department of Mechanical Engineering as an Associate Professor in Fall 2022!

Li’s research group, the Computational Materials Design Laboratory, focuses on developing and applying novel multiscale and multiphysics modeling methods, integrated with machine learning and data
science techniques, to computationally design advanced polymeric materials, with emphasis
on advanced manufacturing, materials for extreme environments, and sustainable energy solutions.

Li earned his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2015. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Connecticut.
