Dr Jiuling Li is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Australian Centre of Water and Environmental Biotechnology (ACWEB). He received his bachelor degree in automation in 2012 from Harbin Institute of Technology, China. He expanded his research direction to optimal control in sewer system in 2017, and received his PhD from the University of Queensland in 2021. His research interests include delivering advanced technologies for urban water systems, using smart sensors and IoT for monitoring, data-driven models for data analysis and fault detection, and optimisation algorithms for integrated control. He has published >30 fully refereed journal papers on vastly different fields of Environmental Engineering and Computer Engineering. He is a reviewer for more than 10 international journals, and awarded Outstanding Reviewer of Water Environment Research in 2021. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the International Water Association (IWA).
