PhD Public Defence at KU Leuven

KLU research student, Chuanwen Dong, gave a successful public defence of his PhD dissertation today at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.  His dissertation examines ‘synchromodality from a supply chain perspective’ showing how the potential for shifting freight from road to rail can be significantly increased when a manufacturer coordinates the management of inventory with the choice of transport mode.

His main supervisor at KU Leuven was Prof Robert Boute and his KLU supervisors, Prof Sandra Transchel and Prof Kai Hoberg. I was a member of the Doctoral Committee.   The project was funded by a scholarship from Procter & Gamble who were represented at the PhD Defence by Marc Verlest (Chuanwen’s company supervisor) and Sergio Barbarino.
