  Chen Xiaofang, female, born in 1967, majoring in Management Science and Engineering, professor, Ph. D supervisor, vice director of Department of Audit of WUT, member of Chinese Registered Accountant Association, member of Academic Committee of Hubei Provincial Internal Audit, vice secretary of European and American Alumni, standing director of Economy Group of Hubei Province, advanced visiting scholar in England for one year.

  Her research areas cover audit theory and its application research, accounting theory and its application research. 

  Professor Chen has published over 50 papers, mainly in important journals like “Audit Research”, “Chinese Audit” and “Finance Monthly”, etc, among which 10 have been quoted to key journals and 5 have been collected into ISTP, e.g. “The Econometrical Model and Analysis on Relationship between Financial Backing and Regional Economic Development”, “Model of Multi-agent based on Personalized Transactions in Electronic Commerce”, etc.

  Her main current projects include 3 provincial projects and 6 other projects, e.g. “Research on Informationization and Accounting Mode Reform of Private-owned Enterprises”, and “Mode Selection and Process Design of Sci-tech Enterprise Cost Control of Private-owned Enterprises”. She has also presided over some research Foundation projects of WUT and has won Social Science Excellent Achievement of Wuhan City as well as publishing 2 teaching books and 1 works.



  Yan Liexiang, male, born in 1954, majoring in chemical engineering, professor, Ph. D supervisor, vice dean of School of Chemical Engineering, Director of Hubei Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Association, visiting professor to UCL (University College, London).

  As the reviewer of the international journal “Computers and Chemical Engineering” and “Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research”, Professor Yan has published over 50 papers, among which 16 have been embodied by SCI and EI.

  Moreover, he has won the third prize of Hubei Scientific and Technological Progress, two second prizes of Hubei Teaching Achievements and three second prizes of Hubei Outstanding Academic Papers. His research areas include:

  1. Process integration: By applying source- trap, pinch analysis and mathematics programming, the production, distribution and exchange of energy and quality is optimized in the process, in order to save energy, source and water as well as prevent pollution and emission.

  2. Visualized optimization: By applying the self-developed “Intelligent Visualized Optimization Technique”, the operating condition and material’s formula are optimized in the process of production, so that the technological and economic indexes are improved obviously.

  3. Planning and scheduling: The planning and scheduling optimized model and corresponding solution algorithm in the process of intermittent and continuous production are developed. The planning and scheduling software system of computer-aided production is developed, in order to improve the enterprise’s management and increase the economic benefits.

  4. Overall optimization: Sorts of optimized mathematic models are developed, including linear and nonlinear and discrete and continuous optimization. By applying the self-developed line-up competition algorithm, the overall optimization is resolved. And the hybrid algorithm based on line-up competition algorithm is developed to solve large-scale optimization problems.
