Gang Chen is a maritime logistics researcher studying port and ship operations using quantitative research methods primarily. His research experience is cumulated since 2006 when he worked as a research assistant in a project on ‘Port Landside Congestion Management’ in collaboration with a main seaport in China. Thereafter Port Operations and Management becomes one of his main research areas. In 2008, Gang Chen moved his Ph.D. study from Dalian Maritime University to the University of Southern Denmark. After finishing his Ph.D. work, he participated in an EU project at the University of Southern Denmark for a short period of time

In August 2012, Gang Chen joined Aalborg University as an Assistant Professor and got promoted to Associate Professor in 2015. His job involved teaching in a number of programmes and also coordination of a master programme which has an emphasis on individual’s skill balance between business managerial capabilities and digital/automation technology applications in industry. Since Aalborg University follows the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) pedagogical methodology, Gang Chen got well trained to educate undergraduate and graduate students in close collaboration with companies in different business sectors.
