I am currently working as a University Assistant in the Computational Biomechanics field at the Institute of Biomechanics, Graz University of Technology, Austria. My research interests lie primarily in the area of constitutive modeling for soft fibrous tissues such as arterial walls and heart valve leaflets. Previously, I have worked on characterizing and modeling of the bioprosthetic heart valve tissues through biaxial testing and inflation test as well as finite element simulations of bioprosthetic heart valves at Professor Wei Sun’s Tissue Mechanics Lab in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Connecticut, CT, USA (currently in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, GA, USA).

News: Dr. K. Li has recently joined the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports, a Nature Research journal.
