My research focuses on modelling and optimising dynamic transport systems. I received my undergraduate education in Hong Kong. My doctoral research on optimal control of dynamic transport networks completed in England received a Gordon Newell Memorial Dissertation Prize in 2008. I am a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), and Rail Research UK Association (RRUK-A). Before joining CityU, I have held faculty position at University College London in the U.K. (2010-17), and was a postdoctoral researcher at University of California Berkeley under the California PATH program in the U.S. (2007-10).

PhD Opportunities

  • I am recruiting new funded PhD student(s) in Systems Engineering at CityU HK. Potential topics include, but not limited to, integrated road transport systems, metro operations, and dynamic networks. Potential students are expected to have a solid background in mathematics, computing, and statistics. Please email me (with your CV) for further details and discussion if you are interested.

    Exceptionally qualified students are encouraged to apply through the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS).
