Dr. Li graduated from department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, State University of New York, Albany, SUNYA, and joined Howard University as a research associate in 2012. His research involves the topics of remote sensing, atmospheric correction, aerosol-cloud-precipitation interaction and air pollution.

During the PhD, Dr. Li’s research was principally related to developing retrieval algorithms for cloud micro- and macro-physical properties combining passive and active measurements. His subsequent research in ncasm has involved long-term observations of aerosol indirect effects in the Mid-Atlantic region, improving representation of aerosol optical properties in radiative transfer models for atmospheric correction and remote sensing of surface PM2.5.
