About me

I am an associate professor at Beihang University since April 2015. Before joining Beihang, I worked for eight years in the German Aerospace Center (DLR). I have received a PhD degree from Hamburg University of Technology for my work on multi-criteria decision analysis in air transportation in 2012, under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Volker Gollnick. Previously, I earned a Master degree in Control Theory and a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern Polytechnical University in 2008 and 2005, respectively.

In my research, I am mostly interested in air transportation networks and resilience of complex networks. My research is published in venues such as Networks and Spatial Economics, Transportation Research: Part E, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, Transportmetrica B, and Transportmetrica A. A complete list of my publications can be found here. My recent key publications include:

  1. Xiaoqian Sun, Sebastian Wandelt* and Xianbin Cao. On Node Criticality in Air Transportation Networks
    Networks and Spatial Economics. 2017 (accepted, SCI Q1: IF=3.250)
