Research Interests

  • Air transportation systems: airline safety, air traffic network, air traffic management
  • Data analytics, machine learning and data visualization
Lishuai Li is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management at City University of Hong Kong (CityU). Her research interest is the development of analytical methods for the design, management, and operations of transportation systems, focusing on air transport. Her current projects include air traffic network analysis, flight delay modeling, air traffic management, flight operations monitoring, airline safety management, health monitoring of high-speed train components, and the impact of urban transport systems on public sentiment, etc. Her work has an emphasis on the use of large-scale data generated from the actual operations of transport systems, applying methods and technologies of artificial intelligence, data mining, and text mining.

She received a Ph.D. and a M.Sc. in Air Transportation Systems from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She received a B.Eng. in Aircraft Design and Engineering from Fudan University. She was a consultant at McKinsey & Company with the Operations Practice in San Francisco, and she is a pilot.
