Dr Jiang carried out a number of consultancy projects for various industry sectors including services, manufacturing and health while he was at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organizations (CSIRO). He is a member of the Institute of Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS) and the Mathematical Programming Society (MPS). He is an editorial board member of Computational Management Science, International Journal of Revenue Management, Operations Research Letters, and Production and Operations Management.
Dr Jiang was a Senior Research Scientist at the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organizations (CSIRO) in Australia, where he undertook research in combinatorial optimisation and consultancy in applied operations research and management science. Prior to that, he was a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Melbourne, and carried out research in continuous optimisation. He also taught mathematics at both undergraduate and graduate levels at the Guizhou University of Technology in China.
