Our last spotlight of the week is Xu Li, Geographic Information Science.

Xu earned his B.S. in Remote Sensing Science and Technology from Wuhan University in his home country of China. While he was there, he was involved in modeling contests, academic projects and internships as a modeling engineer and programmer. In May 2015 he published “An Extensible Simulation Framework for Diagnosing the Execution of Geospatial Web Service.” This summer he is putting all of his GIS knowledge to work at the CyberGIS Center here at the University of Illinois where he is working with the supercomputer Roger, building servers and more. 

Xu is advised by Dr. Shakil Kashem of the Department of Geography and Geographic Information Science in the School of Earth, Society and Environment housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
