Next Lesson: Session 1 

  Summary

This workshop introduces participants to the emerging field of polymer informatics with a focus on machine learning techniques. Polymer informatics utilizes computational and data-driven approaches to understand and predict polymer properties and behaviors, which is essential for materials innovation. The course will cover foundational concepts in polymer science and machine learning, emphasizing the integration of these disciplines. Participants will learn how to apply various machine learning models, including regression, classification, and neural networks, to solve real-world problems in polymer science and engineering. The course will address data collection, feature selection, model training, and evaluation, specifically tailored to the unique challenges of polymer datasets. Hands-on sessions will guide attendees through the process of building and deploying models using open-source tools and libraries. The course aims to equip researchers, engineers, and data scientists with the skills needed to leverage machine learning in the development of new polymers or plastics and the optimization of existing ones. By the end of the course, participants will have a solid understanding of how machine learning can drive innovation in polymer science and plastic engineering, contributing to advancements in areas such as sustainable materials, biomedical devices, compounding, additives and high-performance polymers.

Ying Li, Ph.D.
Professor
University of Wisconsin - Madison

Dr. Ying Li joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison in August 2022 as an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering. From 2015 to 2022, he was an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Connecticut and was promoted to Associate Professor. He received his Ph.D. in 2015 from Northwestern University, focusing on the multiscale modeling of polymers and related biomedical applications. His current research interests are: multiscale modeling, computational materials design, mechanics and physics of polymers, and machine learning-accelerated polymer design. Dr. Li’s achievements in research have been widely recognized by fellowships and awards, including ACS Polymeric Material Science and Engineering (PMSE) Young Investigator Award (2023), NSF CAREER Award (2021), Air Force’s Young Investigator Award (2020), 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award (2020), ASME Haythornthwaite Young Investigator Award (2019), NSF CISE Research Initiation Initiative Award (2018) and multiple best paper awards from major conferences. He has authored and co-authored more than 130 peer-reviewed journal articles, including Science Advances, Nature Communications, Physical Review Letters, ACS Nano, and Macromolecules, etc. He has been invited as a reviewer for more than 100 international journals, such as Nature Communications and Science Advances. Dr. Li’s lab is currently supported by multi-million-dollar grants and contracts from NSF, AFOSR, AFRL, ONR, DOE/National Nuclear Security Administration, DOE/National Alliance for Water Innovation, and industries.
