Ph.D. in Mathematics, Yeshiva University, 2017 (Advisor: Dr. Wenxiong Chen)

Dr. Li joined the Baylor mathematics department in 2017. Prior to this she worked as an Adjunct Professor at Tandon School of Engineering at New York University in Spring 2017. She graduated with a Ph.D. degree in mathematics from Yeshiva University. Other than exploring the world of math, she takes great joy in exploring the world of nature and doing outdoor sports.

Academic Interests:
Dr. Li’s research interests lie in partial differential equations and integral equations. Her recent work focused on non-local pseudo-differential problems.
