Dr Larry Li received his BASc and MASc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of British Columbia (Canada) as a Natural Sciences & Engineering Research Council Scholar in the Applied Fluid Mechanics Laboratory. He then went on to study for a PhD at the University of Cambridge (UK) as a Bill & Melinda Gates Scholar in the Injector Dynamics Group. After graduating, he stayed on at Cambridge as a Research Associate before joining HKUST in 2014 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
Dr Li’s research focuses on flow instability, combustion, thermo-acoustics, nonlinear dynamics and multiphase flows, with applications ranging from aircraft propulsion to spray painting. He has conducted experiments on a broad range of thermo-fluid phenomena, including absolute / convective instability in open shear flows, non-Newtonian atomization in cross-flows, and passive / active control of thermo-acoustic modes. His industrial experience includes time spent at Rolls-Royce (UK), LB Foster (Canada) and Coanda Research & Development(Canada).
