Dr Jiawei Li is an assistant professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC). Before joining UNNC, he was a research fellow at the University of Stirling from 2016-2017 and the University of Nottingham from 2008-2015. He was a senior lecturer and research fellow at Robotics Institute of Harbin Institute of Technology from 1999 to 2008.
Dr Jiawei Li’s research work has focused on decision making methodologies such as evolutionary game theory, fuzzy logic and interval probability theory and their applications. Special interests include developing new theory for strategic interactions among multiple decision makers and integrating multiple methodologies to solve complicated real world problems.
