Hany S. Abdel-Khalik 


Nuclear Engineering 


Yeni Li received her Bachelor in Nuclear Engineering from Harbin Engineering University in 2014, and a Ph.D. degree in nuclear engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, in 2021. Her Ph.D. dissertation has produced a number of new algorithms serving as a toolkit in support of condition monitoring and cybersecurity. She has been a postdoctoral research assistant with the Nuclear Engineering Department, Purdue University since 2021. Her research primarily focuses on designing reduced-order models for industrial processes, condition monitoring of nuclear systems, physics-guided coverage mapping (PCM) methodology for model validation, and passive anomaly-detection techniques for nuclear reactor cybersecurity.
