Xiaofeng Li received the B.S. degree in optical engineering from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 1985, the M.S. degree in physical oceanography from The First Institute of Oceanography (FIO), State Oceanic Administration, Qingdao, China, in 1992, and the Ph.D. degree in physical oceanography from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, in 1997. During his M.S. program, he completed the course work at the Department of Physics, University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, China. From 1985 to 1992, he studied and worked at FIO. Since 1997, he has been with the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Camp Springs, MD. His research interests include remote sensing observation and theoretical/numerical model studies of various types of oceanic and atmospheric phenomena, image processing, ocean surface oil spill and target detection with multipolarization synthetic aperture radar, and sea surface temperature algorithm development. He is also involved in developing many operational satellite ocean remote sensing products at NESDIS. Dr. Li is a senior member of IEEE, and a member of AGU and AMS.
