Our congratulations to alumnus Dr Yu Li (PhD ’20, MS ’16) for his recognition by Forbes Asia in their 30 under 30 list.
Dr Li, who completed his graduate studies at KAUST in Computer Science with Professor Xin Gao, was recognized by Forbes for his work in data and algorithms which is solving problems in a number of areas including healthcare. Dr Li has published more than 30 papers in academic journals including Bioinformatics and Nature Communications, and a paper published by the Microbiome journal last year examined using computational methods to better identify antibiotic resistance genes.
Following his graduation from KAUST, Dr Li joined the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in December 2020 as an assistant professor, leading the Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare group. His research crosses machine learning, healthcare and bioinformatics, developing new machine learning methods to resolve the computational problems in biology and healthcare.
