Personal profile


Hangfei is a Senior Lecturer in Supply Chain Management at Queen's Business School (effective from 1st August 2024) and the Director of Certificate and Diploma Programmes at the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute at QUB. Hangfei gained her Ph.D. in Business (Management Science) from McMaster University (Canada) and MPhil in Business from Lingnan University (Hong Kong).

Hangfei's main research areas are operational research, operations management and supply chain management. Her current work aims to bridge the gap between mathematical tractability and practical applicability by using analytical models and optimization techniques on one hand and empirical studies employing data-driven and prescriptive methods on the other hand.

Recently, Hangfei has completed a knowledge transfer project that develops an innovative method to manage and optimize supply chains. The method combines simulation, big data analytics and machine learning tools and techniques to develop a digital representation of the supply chain that can be used to support data-driven decision-making in supply chain management. This AKT2I project with SDG has been selected by Innovate UK to be a featured case study on the official KTP website: Supply chain transformation using big data https://www.ktp-uk.org/casestudy/supply-chain-transformation-using-big-data/.
