Chen Li

Chen Li, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, has received a 2021 Space@Hopkins seed grant to develop simulations to enhance a robot’s ability to traverse rocky Martian terrain. He will collaborate with Kevin Lewis, associate professor of earth and planetary sciences at the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.

 The goal of the Space@Hopkins Seed Grant program is to provide seed funding for civilian space related projects at Johns Hopkins that: (1) are relevant to Space@Hopkins and JHU institutional research priorities, (2) provide undergraduate research opportunities, (3) have excellent prospects for leading to successful external research support.
