Ning, Xiaopeng

Assistant Professor, Industrial and Management Systems Engineering


PhD: Iowa State University - Industrial Engineering 
MS: Iowa State University - Agricultural Engineering 
BS: Beijing Institute of Technology - Electronics Engineering

Dr. Ning's research interests are in the area of industrial ergonomics, spine biomechanics and work stress modeling. His previous research has been focusing on the assessment of occupational risk factors as well as the basic biomechanics of human body, where he strives to reveal the underlining mechanisms that cause physical dysfunctions among workers from different industries. His recent work focuses on the investigation of basic biomechanical functions of low back musculature and the development of a new work-rest scheduling model.
