Professor Zhiyong Li is a Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). He has a BEng (1998) in Civil Engineering from Tongji University and a PhD (2004) in Biomedical Engineering from Queen Mary University of London. He was a research fellow and senior research fellow at University of Cambridge 2004-2010. He was elected Fellow of Wolfson College and conferred a MA (2009) from University of Cambridge.

Zhiyong’s main research field is biomechanics and mechanobiology, with a long-term research interest in cardiovascular diseases (atherosclerosis, aneurysm, atrial affiliation). The main focus of his work has been the development of novel technologies for detection of high-risk rupture-prone plaques in patients with carotid and coronary atherosclerosis. The work involves MRI/IVUS/OCT imaging, stress analysis, material characterisation, mathematical/computational modelling and numerical methods. He has made significant contributions to understanding the biomechanics of plaque rupture, publishing over 100 papers collectively on vulnerable atheroma in leading journals, e.g. Circulation, JACC, Nat Rev Cardiol, Nat. Commun, NEJM, Stroke, ATVB, J Biomech, Ann Biomed Eng, Biomech Model Mechanobio. He was awarded an ARC Future Fellowship in 2014, and was the recipient of the 2015 Australia Vascular Biology Society Achievement and Career Development Award.
