Reduce time, waste, and energy.
Logistics and System Analysis
Bringing order to chaos, logistics is what keeps society moving. Speed school faculty are keeping their fingers on the pulse of the latest global advancements and sharing their expertise to improve electric vehicle charging networks, organ allocation, and healthcare services delivery. We use advanced simulation, optimization and data analytics techniques to reduce waste and improve efficiency.
Anything that has to do with multiple components in a whole process we call a system. There is always room to make a system more efficient.- Dr. Lihui Bai

Existing network planning models for electric vehicle (EV) services usually treat the battery swap and the on-board supercharging as two independent processes. This study makes an early attempt to design an EV charging network where battery swap and supercharging are jointly coordinated.
Blood type (ABO) incompatibility and antibody to donor human leukocyte antigen (HLA) remain the most significant barriers in transplantation. While pre-transplant desensitization can be administered to overcome such incompatibilities between living donors and their kidney recipients, desensitization alone is likely to fail for those pairs with significant incompatibilities.
