Qi works on models of Lyman-alpha radiation transport and their applicability to the formation of massive black hole seeds in the early universe, which could go on to grow to the largest black holes in the universe.  He is also interested in the formation of super-massive stars, their radiative effects on the surrounding environment, and relativistic collapse into a singularity.
