With a background in informatics, Prof Li is an interdisciplinary researcher focusing on solving challenges in healthcare using digital technology that combines AI, machine learning, information systems, medical science and social science.

Prof Weizi (Vicky) Li is a Professor of Informatics and Digital Health, Deputy Director in Informatics Research Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading. She is a Fellow of Charted Institute of IT (British Computer Society). She is an interdisciplinary researcher focusing on using informatics, data science, machine learning, and digital information systems to solve real-world healthcare challenges.

She is the Principal Investigator and Director of EPSRC Future Blood Testing for Inclusive Monitoring and Personalised Analytics NetworkPlus. She is the academic lead of a large collaborative project of Improving the Quality of Healthcare through an Integrated Clinical Pathway Management Approach and Cloud-based Digital Data Integration Platform, which was awarded ESRC O2RB Excellence in Impact Award in 2018 and 4*/3* impact case study in REF 2021 for her research impact on healthcare quality improvement. She is the academic lead of a machine learning-based decision support system for outpatient management which has successfully been implemented in Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust and has received the Research Engagement and Impact award in 2020, shortlisted for 2022 impact award and Health Service Journal (HSJ) patient safety award. She has been PI on projects funded by ESRC, EPSRC, The Health Foundation, NHS, Innovate UK and companies, working on data-driven decision support systems that use real-world data (under a privacy-preserving framework) from multiple sources including Electronic Patient Records in acute, community hospital and primary care settings, remote health monitoring and patient-reported outcomes to develop novel technologies (including AI-based methods) to support clinical and operational decision makings in patient pathways.

Prof Li is also the programme director of MSc Digital & Technology Solutions, and is the module convener of MSc Digital Health and Data Analytics.
