Main focus of research
Quantitative multimodal characterization of cellular dynamics in diabetic wounds
Joanne Li received her BS degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington in 2011 and her MS degree in nuclear, plasma, and radiological engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013. She is currently a PhD student in bioengineering under the guidance of professor Stephen Boppart. She was also a Beckman graduate fellow 2015-2016. Joanne’s research focuses on developing and utilizing optical imaging techniques and image processing methods to characterize the skin microenvironment of diabetic wounds. She has previously assessed the effect of stem cell therapy on diabetic wounds, and characterized the healing mechanisms of novel treatments for diabetic wounds in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies. She is currently developing image processing methods to quantitatively characterize in vivo cellular dynamics in a multimodal imaging setting.
