Bio

Fang Li specializes in piezoelectric sensors and transducers, micro/nano technology, non-destructive evaluation, and smart materials. Her research focuses on cell-based biosensors for water toxicity detection and cell biology studies, energy harvesting device for wireless body area networks (WBANs), and acoustic wave sensors for harsh-environment applications. Li is a member of IEEE, the IEEE UFFC, and ASME.

Li received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in precision instruments from Tsinghua University of Beijing, China, and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. After completing her doctoral studies, she worked for several years at Intelligent Automaton, Inc., of Maryland, before joining NYIT’s faculty.
