About Me

Ming Li is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and holds a courtesy appointment at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Arizona. Prior to joining the University of Arizona, he was an Assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Utah State University from 2011 to 2015. He received a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, an M.E. and a B.E. degree in Electronic and Information Engineering from Beihang University in China.

Prof. Li’s primary research interests are in general areas of Wireless and Cyber Security, with current emphases on wireless network modeling and optimization, wireless and spectrum security, privacy-preserving data analytics, and cyber-physical system security. He is particularly interested in exploring new performance limits and increasing security of wireless networks by exploiting advances at the physical layer, and designing novel cryptographic protocols to protect people’s privacy in the big data era. He is always interested in problems that have potential real-world impact, solutions that are simple but based on solid mathematical foundations, and tries to bridge theory and practice.
