Biography

Xianping Li joined the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU in Fall 2019. He is also an affiliate of the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Before joining ASU, he had been an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City since 2013. He had been a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Central Arkansas from 2011 to 2013. 

Li's research area is in computational mathematics with applications in engineering, biology, science and medical image processing. He is interested in developing anisotropic mesh adaptation and moving mesh method to address the challenges as well as to improve the efficiency and accuracy in the computations.
