Dr. Li obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Rochester (Rochester, NY, USA) in 2016. Following this, he served as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, San Diego (CA , USA) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (NM , USA) until he joined USTC as a faculty member in 2021. His research is centered around inertial confinement fusion (ICF) and high energy density physics (HEDP), with a specific focus on laser-plasma instabilities (LPI) and hydrodynamic instabilities. Dr. Li employs large-scale parallel computing to simulate nonlinear physical problems and develops analytical theories to analyze simulation and experimental results, aiming to uncover novel insights into physics. His prior publications are primarily featured in journals such as Phys. Rev. Lett., Phys. Rev. E, Nucl. Fusion, New Journal of Phys., Plasma Phys. Contr. Fusion, and Phys. Plasmas.

1) Laser plasma instabilities and hydrodynamic instabilities in ICF
2) High performance large-scale parallel computing.

Within this project, students will acquire fundamental knowledge in laser plasma physics and hydrodynamic instabilities while actively engaging in the investigation of cutting-edge research topics.

A strong background in mathematics and physics is preferred, and a keen interest in plasma physics is highly desirable.
