Li Awarded the Julia and Michael Ellegood Strategic Doctoral Fellowship

Li Awarded the Julia and Michael Ellegood Strategic Doctoral Fellowship PhD candidate Xuan Li has been awarded the 2016-2017 Julia and Michael Ellegood Strategic Doctoral Fellowship.

Li earned his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering at Dalian University of Technology in China. In 2014 he joined CEE and completed his masters in 2015.  

Currently he is co-advised by professors Xuesong (Pine) Liu and Zhen (Sean) Qian. Li’s research will focus on using multi-modal transportation data for energy control and management by looking real-time and associated user patterns for transportation and structural systems.

“I am really grateful for being nominated and awarded with this fellowship,” Xuan says. “I would like to thank Julia and Michael Ellegood for their support to my further research.”

This fellowship was established with the generosity of Michael (BS '60) and Julia Ellegood in 2008 and targets research where more traditional funding sources may not yet be available.
