Li’s research centers on soil microbial ecology and carbon biogeochemistry in the context of climate change, by looking into the roles of functional groups of microbes in carbon cycle and predicting their responses to changing environmental conditions. He also explores microbial ecology of pollutant degradation for the development of novel improved bioremediation processes.
