    Research interests

    I am a tenured Associate Professor and Program Leader of Industrial Engineering (MSc) at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. My research interests are real-problem-driven model development to solve complex decision-making problems in sustainable supply chain, reverse logistics, location and network design, service systems, scheduling, and smart logistics in Industry 4.0/5.0. These optimization/simulation models can be used to minimize carbon footprints and environmental risks of logistics systems and supply chains, to improve the service level and cost efficiency of postal service networks, to locate the charging stations for electric/hydrogen vehicles, to autonomously configure reconfigurable manufacturing systems, to improve the lockage efficiency of a water conservancy project, and so forth.

    Currently, my research focuses on the combination of predictive analytics, prescriptive analytics, and descriptive analytics in an Industry 5.0 enabled Smart Digital Logistics Twin that can be used in, for example, reverse logistics, humanitarian/epidemic logistics, and reconfigurable remanufacturing systems. My current project includes:

    1, Industry 5.0 enabled Smart Logistics: A Global Perspective (2023-2026), funded by the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills (HK-dir) under the UTFORSK program.

    2, Innovative Green Roofs through a Circular Economy Model (2022-2023), funded by Innovation Norway under EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.

    In addition, I have led or been a key member of several projects at both national and international levels, e.g., Idea Factory, funded by UiT; Optimization / Optimization of Digital, Customer-Focused, Sustainable and Low-Carbon Logistics and Transportation Network in Industry 4.0 (OptiLog 4.0) funded by RCN; TARGET funded by EU NPA Program; and I3 Innovation and Industrial Internet funded by EU Interreg Nord Program, etc. 

    I am a member of the Norwegian Operations Research Society (NORS), the EURO Working Group on Sustainable Supply Chain (EWGSSC), the EURO Working Group on Location Analysis (EWGLA), and the EURO Working Group on Practice of OR. Frequent reviewer of more than 50 International journals including Nature Communications; Journal of Cleaner Production; Environmental Science & Technology; Environmental Research; Omega; IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management; IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems; Computers & Operations Research; Annals of Operations Research; Computers & Industrial Engineering; Applied Mathematical Modeling; International Journal of Production Economics; International Journal of Production Research; Transportation Research Part E; Engineering Optimization; etc.
