  • Biography

    Before joining Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School in June 2021, Dr. Li has worked in the offshore engineering industry for 10 years. He was the R&D Director of Sortec Offshore Singapore, and the Floating System Manager with Bureau Veritas where he led advanced technical study and software promotion in South Asia & Australia. He was a research fellow at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as well as an adjunct lecturer & field supervisor at Universiti Teknologi Petronas, Malaysia, and Ph.D. co-supervisor at the National University of Singapore.

    Dr. Li is an industry-recognized expert in hydrodynamics and mooring system of marine and offshore floating structures, and serves as a member of the program committee for various international conferences such as OTC Asia and APOGCE. He has 15 years of experience solving various marine hydrodynamic, sea-keeping, and station-keeping problems for marine and offshore structures, and has developed the KraKen software dedicated to fully-coupled marine offshore operation and mooring analysis. Dr. Li has led over 40 engineering consulting and advisory projects, and has also participated in applied research projects sponsored by government funding such as the Chinese NSFC, Maritime Port Authority Singapore, and Australia ARC. With rich research experience, he has authored 40 technical papers in journals and conferences.
