Dr Asian’s main research focus is in the development of a dynamic model of conditional value-at-risk for risk assessment and mitigation of transportation in urban last-mile logistics networks.
Logistics and global supply chain resiliency.
His study has proved that in the context of complex urban logistics, decision making on the prioritising of transportation routing and shipment significantly depends on the decision maker’s perception and experience on controlling the risk confidence level. His research includes the design of efficient strategies to optimise the overall performance of global complex supply networks while at the same time mitigating the risks and sharing them within the individual elements.
He has collaborated with research teams from international research institutions such as Cornell University (USA) and the University of Auckland (NZ) and produced papers published in IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics: Systems and Annals of Operations Research.
Dr Asian was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015 and is based in the School of Business IT and Logistics.
