Dr. Lin Li is a member of the technical staff in the Human Language Technology Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Her research is focused on social network analysis, advanced graph analytics, and anomaly detection in networks. She is currently investigating approaches on entity disambiguation in networks, community detection across different social networks, and dark web analytics.

Before joining Lincoln Laboratory in 2015, Dr. Li worked at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi, Maryland, as a postdoctoral researcher. Her research was on learning the sparse representations of high-dimensional data, developing a modeling framework for learning the dynamic patterns in the collective behaviors of social agents, and numerically analyzing interactions between connected agents in social networks.

Dr. Li is a member of the IEEE. She received the 2014 Young Author Best Paper Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society for her work on distributed principal subspace estimation in wireless sensor networks.

Dr. Li received a PhD degree in 2013 and a BS degree in 2008, both in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California, Davis.
