Yizeng Li received her PhD from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. She was a postdoctoral researcher at Johns Hopkins University's Department of Mechanical Engineering and Institute for NanoBioTechnology. Her backgrounds are in theoretical mechanics and applied mathematics with applications to biophysics and mechanobiology.
Li develops physiology-based mathematical models for cell motility, polarization, volume regulation, electro-homeostasis, signal transduction, and other biophysics problems. She also combines mathematical models with experimental data to explain non-intuitive cell biology phenomena.
