Nanyang Technological University
Dr Li received his B.Eng. degree in Structural Engineering from Tong Ji University, Shanghai, and his Ph.D. from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. Dr. Li has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in the area of structural design, including courses on the behavior, design, and assessment of reinforced concrete structures. Dr. Li has research interests primarily in the areas of seismic performance of reinforced concrete building structures. Most recently, Dr Li is actively working in the areas of anti-terrorist design and evaluation for government and commercial facilities, and research & development blast testing for explosive effects on conventional reinforced concrete structures and buildings made from precast concrete.
Earthquake and Blast Resistant Design: Seismic and blast resistant design of reinforced concrete buildings and buildings incorporating precast concrete elements. Development blast testing for explosive effects on reinforced concrete structures.
Structural Concrete: Design and behavior of reinforced and precast concrete structures, reinforcement detailing and cyclic strut-and-tie models.
Structural Dynamics: Non-linear dynamic response of buildings subjected to blast and seismic loadings. Probabilistic performance assessment of reinforced concrete structures in blast environments.
