My Professional Statement:
I am an Associate Professor in aviation who specialises in solving operations and scheduling problems of airlines and airports. These problems include airline operations management, scheduling, airport terminal planning, airport retail development and passenger choice behaivour studies. Many of my past projects helped industry partners save millions of dollars in operating costs or enhance product sales and revenues. I lead a team of researchers who have specialised skills to deliver values for industry partners while we innovate our approach to solving industry problems through world-class aviation research at UNSW Australia.


My Research Interests
My research focus on airport operations, airline operations, schedule optimisation and passenger's choice behaviour modelling. I published a book with Ashgate Publishing, titled 'Airline Operations and Delay Management. This book was published in March 2010. Check the book at: Ashgate website. You can also find this book via Amazon.com. A simplified-Chinese version of this book is also available via Chinese Civil Aviation Publishing House.
