Dr. Li is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Fisk University since June, 2014. He has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science, Technology and Mathematics at Lincoln University of Missouri since 2010. He received his PhD in Applied Mathematics from Louisiana State University in 2010.
Dr. Li’s research lies in two areas: one is in optimization and nonlinear programming, and the other one is in mathematics education. He will work with faculty members to establish new modules for developmental mathematics courses and assure alignment between these new-developed modules, as well as serve as SI supervisor for the students who lead SI for this course including the development and continual improvement of SI materials. Furthermore, Dr. Li will also develop stage-appropriate workshops for Fisk students wanting to go to Graduate School.
Dr. Li teaches Intermediate Algebra, Pre-calculus and Calculus I at Fisk University.
