My research interests include mathematical programming and operations research methods for complex decision-making problems in facility location, network design, reverse logistics, sustainable supply chain, flexible capacity allocation, and scheduling. I have extensive research experience in the development of mathematical optimization models and computational algorithms that can be used to minimize carbon emissions and environmental risks of logistics systems and supply chains, to improve service level and cost efficiency of urban postal service networks, and to improve lockage efficiency, facility utilization and environmental performance of the world’s largest water conservancy project.
I am a Key member of several research projects at both national and international levels including 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; International Journal of Production Economics; Resource, Conservation and Recycling; Environmental Science & Technology; Environmental Research; Computers & Industrial Engineering; Computers & Operations Research; Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review; Expert Systems with Applications; The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology; Waste Management; Applied Mathematical Modeling; Sustainable Cities and Society; IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems; Engineering Optimization; etc.
