Key details

Dr Li Zhou
BSc, MSc, PhD

Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management, Deputy Director of Networks and Urban Systems Centre, Co-Director of Connected Cities Research Group, Programme Director of MA Logistics and Supply Chain Management


Professor Li Zhou is an expert on operations and supply chain management in the Department of Systems Management & Strategy, Business School, University of Greenwich. She has been a member of the faculty since July 2005.

She received a BSc and an MSc in Engineering, and a PhD in Management Science and Engineering. Prior to joining the University of Greenwich, She was a post-doctoral researcher at Logistics Systems Dynamics Group (LSDG), Business School, Cardiff University, UK; a visiting scholar at the Department of Production Economics, Linköping Institute of Technology, Sweden; an associate professor and an associate dean in the Institute of Industrial Automation, Nanchang University, China. 

Li has had excellent opportunities to teach a variety of courses and do research in different universities in China, Sweden and the UK. During over 30 years in the profession, she has taught at levels ranging from part-time adult education to full-time undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD supervision. Currently, she leads and teaches the modules of 'Purchasing and Distribution', 'Procurement and Supply Managment', 'Research Methods and Foundation of Scholarship', and 'Dissertation'. 

Li has acted in several different leadership roles during her international career, ranging from project leadership to team leader and team member in a number of projects funded by the Chinese government, the Swedish Institute, EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie, and enterprises. These projects range from product design to education and management consulting. She therefore has accumulated a wealth of experience working with industry partners and acquired a real view of the whole supply chain starting from product design, purchasing, production, to marketing, and to recycling, where the operations management concept embeds in each stage.

So far, she has had over 120 articles published in various forms including journal papers, edited book chapters, and conference papers. Her work appears (inter alia) in internationally recognised and high-impact journals such as "Production and Operations Management", "European Journal of Operational Research",  "International Journal of Production Economics", "OR Spectrum", "OMEGA - The International Journal of Management Science", and "Supply Chain Management: An International Journal".

Li is a managing guest editor or guest editor for the special issues in the International Journal of Production Economics and Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review. She is also a regular reviewer for a number of international journals and an invited reviewer for a few funding bodies.

Apart from strong academic record, Li is also a frequent contributor to professional institutes and educational organisations. For many years, she has been serving as an assessor for the International Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSCM), Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) and Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK (CILT).

Research / Scholarly interests

Professor Li Zhou's expertise mainly lies in operations management and supply chain management. There are five coherent themes:

  • Economic assessment and systems dynamics performance measurement of the supply chain 
  • Reverse logistics management
  • Inventory management
  • Sustainable purchasing and procurement
  • Big data application in supply chains.

The focus of her research has been to analyse economic and environmental performance of businesses and their supply chains by using modelling simulations.

Li's research in these areas not only contributes to academic theory and knowledge, but also business success and societal development. For instance, from an operational aspect, inventory management is a critical element for any organisation - holding too much inventory will tie up space and capital which incurs significant operations and opportunity costs, but on the other hand, running out of inventory can lead to catastrophic slowdowns across the supply chain which can additionally impact many downstream companies. Her research on optimising inventory levels, reducing the bullwhip effect, and measuring performance in the supply chain has been well received by practitioners.

Reverse logistics and green supply chain, one of her research areas, has benefited the Chinese battery recycling industry in terms of how the industry can improve their performance through financial support from the government, environmental awareness campaigns, adoption of new technology and development of a new business model to stimulate a higher product recycling rate. Part of this research outcome can also be applied to other industries to minimise environmental impact.
