Welcome to Lin Li Research Group
Our interest is exploring the structure-property-processing relationships in structural metals and materials, with particular emphasis on size effect, structural disorder, and their roles in mechanical properties. Our research utilizes computational simulations and analytical theories to establish the spatial and temporal connections between microscopic and macroscopic materials performance, particularly for nanostructured metals, metallic glasses and grain boundary networks.
We are looking for enthusiastic undergraduate, graduate students and postdoc to join our group. Please see Opportunities for details.
