F.N. ZhangAssistant Professor
Dr. Fangni Zhang is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering at The University of Hong Kong. Dr. Zhang received her PhD degree in Transportation from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and her Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Beihang University, China. Prior to joining HKU, she held Lecturer positions at University of New South Wales and University of Leeds. Dr. Fangni Zhang’s research covers a wide range of fundamental and emerging issues in transportation, including multimodal transportation system modeling and optimization, shared and automated transportation management, high-speed rail and air transportation modeling. Her research has been published in world-leading journals and conferences in the field (e.g., Transportation Science, Transportation Research Part A/B/C/D/E and ISTTT). Dr. Zhang's research has been supported by the Research Grants Council (RGC) of Hong Kong SAR and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
