W. (Weitao) Xiong


A visiting PhD candidate from National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), China. I got my master degree from College of Systems Engineering at NUDT. Now, I am researching the decision support for search and rescue with Prof. dr. ir. P.H.A.J.M. van Gelder.


My main research interests focus on Search and Rescue, Decision Analysis, Operations Research, and Game Theory. I focus on decision support for maritime Search and Rescue operations, when an emergency such as ship collision or oil spill at sea occurs. I want to use probability analysis and design decision support systems to accomplish the resources allocation quickly.

A game theory-based development planning approach for weapon system-of-systems.
