Dr. Li is currently a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He obtained his M.D. degree from Fudan University in China, and Ph.D. degree in hearing and speech sciences from Vanderbilt University. He completed his residency training in otolaryngology at Shanghai Eye and ENT hospital. Dr. Li has been working in the field of otolaryngology for over 10 years. His research interests include neurophysiology, voice disorder, hearing loss, and artificial intelligence. Most of his recent research works focus on translational medicine and artificial intelligence in head and neck diseases. He is currently working on two NIH-funded human studies to investigate novel neurostimulation approaches for two airway disorders, including bilateral vocal fold paralysis and obstructive sleep apnea. He is also interested in extending this research line to the management of facial paralysis. In addition, he is leading multiple studies using machine learning and big data techniques in otolaryngology and other areas of medicine. He is the primary investigator in a recent NIH-sponsored study on big data analyses of long-term risks in obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Li assists the Jan Lab with their computational analyses.
