William Li
William Li is a first year graduate student (having completed his Masters in TPP/EECS in June, 2012). He works with Seth Teller in the Robotics, Vision and Sensor Network Group and with Nicolas Roy in the Robust Robotics Group. He is developing computational methods to draw insights from large collections of legal and political documents. This work offers new ways to answer research questions in law, politics, and public policy, from the authorship of Supreme Court opinions to the evolution of our laws. It could also lead to new technologies that promote citizen engagement and government transparency. Previously, he earned his master's degrees at MIT in computer science and the Technology and Policy Program. As an undergraduate, he was an Engineering Science student at the University of Toronto.
