Dr Wendy Jiao is a Senior Lecturer in Operations Management at the University of Exeter Business School since September 2021. Prior to joining Exeter, Wendy was a Lecturer in Operations Management at Loughborough University and a post-doctoral fellow at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Wendy is the Principle Investigator of British AcademyLeverhulme Small Research Grant, “Dynamic Bargaining Games in the Container Leasing Industry”. In addition, she is a core member of a large research grant of the NSFC/RGC Joint Research Scheme about container leasing, in which she played a leading role in coordinating research groups in universities of Hong Kong and Beijing, container users and leasing companies.

Qualifications

  • PhD in Supply Chain Management (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

  • Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy

Research interests

  • Revenue Management  
  • Capacity Management 
  • Inventory Management

Dr Wendy Jiao’s research covers operations research and stochastic optimization, mainly concentrating on dynamic revenue management, capacity management, and inventory management. She specifically investigates different theoretical and analytical methods and adopts them to examine dynamic linear/nonlinear pricing problems of stochastic rental systems given various features of rental suppliers and different characteristics of customers.

Wendy started on the container rental pricing research since her PhD study. With a comprehensive understanding of the problem, she applied her research methodologies and results to the container leasing industry and the media advertising industry in the past three years. Besides, she extended the research into general pricing problems in sharing economies in industry and built up industrial collaborations and investigated application issues in some related companies in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and Mainland China.

Research projects

Wendy’s ongoing research focuses on B2B revenue management and fleet management in the container leasing industry.
