Dr. Peng Li is a research scientist working in the surgery department of Massachusetts general hospital(MGH) and Harvard medical school. His recent research focuses on building better informatics systems to leveraging artificial intelligence to provide sophisticated insights based on large chunks of electronic health records and data gathered by the sensors in smartphones, wearables, and other portable devices. He has designed DMedic: a Real-Time Indexing, Visualization, and Analysis Platform to improve the workflow of next-generation personalized medical care based on deep AI analytics of EHR.

Dr. Peng Li has been interested in high-throughput omics data analysis, database development, and online data analysis platform design at big data scope. He participated in the next-generation SEquencing Quality Control (SEQC) project led by the US Food and Drug Administration and integrated mass spectrometric data with RNA-Seq data for studying the landscape of the human proteome. He designed the system architecture for the one-stop proteomic cloud platform(Firmiana), which allows scientists to deposit mass spectrometry (MS) raw files, perform proteome identification and quantification online, carry out bioinformatics analyses, and extract knowledge without the need for programming expertise. He developed the Arabidopsis thaliana Protein Interactome Database (AtPID) and has kept updating this well-used online resource for the past ten years.
