Dr. Li got his Ph.D. in University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2005. He joined the school of Earth and Space Sciences (ESS) of USTC in 2013. Before that, he was a full research scientist in the State University of New York. He was honored as the “Professor of Hundred-Talent Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences” and the “Specially Recruited Experts of Anhui Province in China” in 2013.

Dr. Li serves as the full professor and deputy dean of ESS USTC; the professor of the State Key Laboratory of Fire Science; the adjunct professor of University of Quebec in Abitibi, Canada; the member of China National Committee for WMO World Weather Research Programee (WWRP), the member of China National Committee for International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), the member of China National Administry Committee on Teaching Atmospheric Science in Higher Education, and the council member of the Anhui Meteorology Society.

His research has been focusing on the water cycle and energy balance processes in the Earth’s climate system, and devote to the development of advanced satellite remote sensing methods and datasets; and apply them to climate system research. Current work focus:

1) Developing visible/infrared/microwave combined satellite remote sensing methods for forest vegetation moisture content, and apply them to large area forest transpiration and forest fire related research;

2) Using satellite remote sensing and model simulations to study the impacts of mineral dust and fire released aerosols on atmosphere;

3) Developing the physical satellite algorithm of the vertical profile of precipitation latent heat, and use this to understand the influence of latent heat on regional weather and large-scale atmospheric circulation
