Dr Sen Li
Sen joined the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) in May 2014, as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant within the Biodiversity and Climate Adaptation theme. He is involved in two European-funded projects: OPENNESS and IMPRESSIONS. His research interests include environmental modelling, agent-based modelling, geographical information sciences/systems (GIS), medical geography (or spatial epidemiology) and geospatial semantic web services.
Sen earned his PhD. in Medical Geography from Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium), M.Sc. in GIS from the University of Edinburgh (UK) and B.Sc. in GIS from Sun Yat-sen University (P.R. China). Prior to joining the ECI, he was an Aspirant research fellow at the National Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS) and Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium.
