As the head of LSU's Geometric and Visual Computing Group, located in the Louisiana Digital Media Center, Li works with his team to develop computer programs that help people understand and analyze geometric or visual data such as images, videos, or 3D scans acquired from one's daily life. In the past, his group has helped build an image-guided lung tumor motion-tracking system used to guide and optimize-next generation lung cancer radiotherapy treatment. The GVC Group has also worked with civil engineers to reconstruct flood hydrographs for Hurricane Harvey. But unlike both of those projects, Li's current work may help lives already lost.
