Jr-Shin Li, PhD

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

My research interests lie in the broad areas of systems, computational, and data sciences. In particular,
I work on research problems motivated by the emerging challenge and applications arising
from these domains. My research program is interdisciplinary and has addressed a wide array of
topics, including ensemble control, synchronization engineering, computational neuroscience, and
dynamic learning, with broad and seminal applications to brain medicine, chronobiology, magnetic
resonance imaging, public health, and neural engineering. The overarching theme of my research
is the development of theoretical and computational methods for analysis and extraction of
dynamic structures and information of complex networks, robust manipulation of population systems,
optimal control of uncertain systems, and dynamic and geometric learning of large-scale and
high-dimensional data.
