Dr Li Ding, BEcon, MSc, PhD
Dr Li Ding's research interests have been fostered through the five year's OR/MS training at Edinburgh, which lie at the application of quantitative methods, especially operational research and statistics to support sequential decision making in business context. Her PhD studies focus on stochastic modelling of the outsourcing of warranty repairs. After taking the current post at Durham, her research interests have been further widened by the teaching in Operations Management and the close collaboration with colleagues from the Finance department at the school.
