Lu Li is a geophysicist and postdoctoral research associate at the University of Western Australia. He obtained his PhD from UWA, studying the lithosphere properties of Antarctica and their impact on cryosphere and solid-earth interactions.

His research interests include processing, modelling, and interpreting geophysical data to improve our understanding of Antarctic lithosphere structure and its related land ice-ocean interaction processes. He is also interested in linking geophysics and petrophysics to understand natural resources, tectonics, and earth systems.

He is a big fan of open-source software and collaborates with other researchers to build an open-source community called Fatiando for geophysics applications. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, cycling, and playing tennis.
