Nan LI is a computational geometry researcher and until now is an associate professor at Institute of Mineral Resources, China Academy of Geological Sciences in Beijing, China. Nan received his MSc in Computer Science from China University of Geosciences, Beijing in 2006 and a PhD in GIS from at same university in 2011. He moved to CAGS in 2007 as an assistant research fellow and took up a position there as an associate professor in 2011.In 2013, he was invited to visit CET as scholar.

His research interests are divided between algorithm of 3D geological modelling techniques and GIS-based prospectivity mapping. He is currently postdoc based at CET.
