Li Dong

Dr. Li Dong received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in August 2017.
He also holds M.S. degrees in Applied Mathematics from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and in Civil Engineering from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

His research interests are PDE-constrained optimization algorithms and applications in general. His doctoral research focused on developing efficient algorithms for soft tissue material property identification to help cancer diagnose and cell traction force microscopy to infer cell motility which is crucial in stem cell differentiation.

He was the recipient of an ICES Postdoctoral Fellowship from 2017-18.

He is currently working on uncertainty quantification of wave propagation models. His research at ICES is performed under the supervision of Prof. Omar Ghattas and Prof. Tan Bui-Thanh.
