Dr. Li has expertise in mycology in the following: spatial and temporal patterns of airborne fungi, relationships of airborne fungi and air quality, characterization of airborne fungal spores; indoor fungi, sampling strategy of indoor fungi investigation, fungi of air quality importance; biosystematics of Stachybotrys and allies. His expertise also includes biocontrol of Botrytis cinerea; utilizing ectomycorrhizae for solid waste remediation.

Ph.D. University of Waterloo, Canada (1994); Mycology

M.Sc. Lakehead University, Canada (1990); Forest Pathology/Mycology

Station Career:
Assistant Agricultural Scientist II 2004-2008
Associate Agricultural Scientist 2008-2015
Agricultural Scientist 2015-present

Past Research:Dr. Li investigated indoor fungi/molds and airborne fungi and their relationships with allergies and environmental factors. His studies determined airborne fungal compositions and populations, and explicated causal relationships between airborne fungal spores and allergenic responses of patients and the functional relationships between airborne fungi in residential buildings and outdoors. His studies also characterized the seasonal and diurnal patterns of airborne fungal spores. During his postdoctoral research, his focus was on biocontrol of gray mold, Botrytis cinerea. He isolated and evaluated three promising biocontrol agents for controlling grey mold on vegetables and ornamental plants. The efficacies of the biocontrol agents in relation to host development and environmental factors were studied in laboratory and greenhouses.

Current Research:
Dr. Li is working on s
patio-temporal patterns and release/dispersal mechanisms of airborne fungi indoors and outdoors, succession of fungi on building materials, and biosystematics of Stachybotrys and Memnoniella.
