Jie Li, PhD, is a postdoc researcher at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, fascinated with a wide range of topics, from disentangling the complexity of ecosystems to unveiling causative mechanisms and biomarkers of human diseases using network sciences, from collective behavior in nature to how a complex system does really work. Dr. Li received his bachelor’s degree of engineering at Fuyang Normal University and master’s degree in biomedical engineering three years later at Shenzhen University, in China. In 2018, he started to pursue his PhD in information science at Hokkaido University where his study was centered on complex network modeling and its applications in ecosystems. As a PhD student at Hokkaido University, he was selected among five doctoral students through the I-HoP program to visit Research Triangle Park, NC, USA and to give presentations about his research and exchange ideas with scientists and researchers in industry. Prior to coming to Hokkaido University, he had three-year industrial experience as a software engineer in telecommunication and AI companies.

After he obtained his PhD, Dr. Li joined the Computational Science Lab at Informatics Institute, University of Amsterdam. Now he is working on multilayer and multiplex human disease networks as a part of an EU-funded project “TO_AITION” (https://www.to-aition.eu), and his current research interests lie primarily in information-theoretic causality inference and higher-order interaction networks.
