Biography :

Jonathan Li is professor of geomatics at the Department of Geography and Environmental Management. He holds a PhD degree in geomatics engineering from the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 2000. Prior to joining the University of Waterloo in 2007, he was on the faculty at Ryerson University and the University of Regina (2000-2006). Professor Li’s research interests lie mainly in the areas of remote sensing and geographical information science. The focus is placed on use of the state-of-the-art Earth observation and mobile mapping systems to derive spatial and attribute information to support effective urban-suburban planning and environmental management activities; to extract geometric information of urban structures for developing theories and models of urban morphology; to detect land use and land cover changes to study spatiotemporal dynamics and consequences of urbanization as a major form of global changes.

Research Interest :

Mobile laser scanning; point cloud processing, environmental monitoring; autonomous driving; geospatial intelligence.
