Research overview

My research encapsulates last-mile logistics, spatial data science and e-commerce. In particular, on-demand delivery services in which delivery resources mainly depend upon crowdsourced labour (sharing or gig economy) and whose customers are time-sensitive. Well-known examples are online meal delivery services (JustEat) and personal shopper systems (Weezy, Gorillas). Methodologically, I use sequential decision analytics and mixed-integer programming techniques to tackle the above organizations' underlying optimisation problems.

PhD supervision

Available for supervising PhD students willing to conduct research on sustainable supply chain operations, on-demand logistics, and sharing economy.
