Dr. D. (Dan) Jiang


Dr. Dan Jiang is a visiting researcher in Safety and Security Science section. She has worked as a lecturer in Chongqing Jiaotong University of China since 2016. Prior to visiting TU Delft, Dan received a Ph.D. in Water Traffic Engineering from Wuhan University of Technology of China. Her background is in the water traffic system and maritime risk analysis based on quantitative methods.


My research focuses on complexity of the water traffic system which involves human, ship and the environment. Much of the work is concerned with the risk analysis and decision making in the water traffic system. Furthermore, my interest is also on revealing the failure mode of the information exchange in the water traffic system, so as to find the inner relationship between the information failure and the external risk. Current research is on an NSFC project “Dynamic risk assessment of ship traffic in complex waters”.
