Primary Supervisor: Prof Adam Dennett

Second Supervisor: Dr Sarah Wise

Start Date: 26 September 2022

Huixin studied in Logistics Management during her bachelor’s degree. Then she changed her major to Design Science in her first master’s degree in Beijing Jiaotong University. And she achieved her MRes degree in Spatial Data Science and Visualisation at CASA in 2021.

Research Summary

Huixin’s PhD research aims develop an agent-based model of the route choice of drivers transporting freight from distributors to individuals (conventionally known as business-to-consumer or B2C freight), exploring the influence of delivery drivers' cognition and their resilience in the face of changes to the road network.
