Department of Mechanical Engineering – Dr Xinshan Li

Xinshan Li has been a lecturer in the Department of Mechaincal Engineering at the University of Sheffield since 2013.

Dr Li’s main research interest is in continuum modelling of the human body and soft tissue mechanics, particularly with application to obstetrics, gynaecology and paediatrics. She is also interested in modelling nonlinear hyper-elastic biological materials undergoing large deformation and the use of contact mechanics in modelling soft tissues. Her most recent work also involves modelling cellular interactions in skin as well as bone mechanics in young children.
