Dr. Zheng (Jeremy) Li is an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the School of Engineering in University of Bridgeport. Before joining UB as a full time associate professor in 2007, Dr. Li worked about 14 years as full time scientist and senior research and design engineer in several different U.S. industries. He was also involved in U.S. Air force/Military research contracts and taught UB as adjunct faculty from 1999 to 2007. Dr. Li has published 2 books, 6 book chapters, 34 journal papers, and 44 conference papers since joining UB in 2007. He also got one grant award directly from NASA and one grant from NASA-funded Connecticut Space grant.
