Dr. Bingnan Li is a Research Associate (research-focused academic staff) in the Biosecurity Program of Kirby Institute, Faculty of Medicine and Health, UNSW Sydney. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Geospatial Data Mining from the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering at UNSW, and a Master degree in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) from East China Normal University, Shanghai, China. Under the supervision of A/Prof. Samsung Lim, his Ph.D. research is focused on deep learning-based spatio-temporal data mining using multi-source geospatial data. He proposed four efficient approaches in different scenarios for spatio-temporal data mining that take advantage of multi-source geospatial data to overcome the limitations of traditional data mining methods. He also applies GIS to real-world problems and helps decision-making, including red-flagging of epidemics. His research fields include geospatial analysis, geospatial data mining, and social media analysis of infectious diseases.
