The Institute of Applied Optimization welcomes Associate Professor Dr. Jingneng Ni [倪敬能副教授] as a new member of our team. Before joining our institute, Dr. Ni has worked as a Specialized Course Teacher in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Statistics [数学与应用统计系] of our School of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data [人工智能与大数据学院] of our Hefei University [合肥大学]. Dr. Ni has obtained his Ph.D. in Management Science & Engineering [博士] from Business School [四川大学商学院] of Sichuan University [四川大学], Chengdu [成都市], Sichuan [四川省] in 2016. He is an expert in modeling and simulation, operations research, bi-level decision making, and uncertain information processing. He has applied these technologies highly successfully to water resource management, ecosystem engineering, protection, and restoration. Several of his studies concern the ecosystem of the Chao Lake [巢湖], one of the five largest fresh water lakes in China and located very near to our city Hefei.

We are very happy that Dr. Ni joined our team. We are looking forward to working together and to exploring synergies to our research on optimization and hydrological modeling.
