Weixi is involved in teaching modules on Enterprise and Business Development, Global Supply Chain Management and Managing Supply Chains.

Weixi is actively engaged in research activities within the Business school across various disciplines such as innovation, strategy, operations management and supply chain management intending to deliver the high number and quality academic/practice outputs to support the forthcoming REF and impact research.

Research areas

Weixi's research interests include utilizing supply chain approaches to the strategy and operation of business-to-business relationships especially through the processes of partnership management, such as Supply Chain Management, Performance Measurement, Supply Chain Partnerships and Multicultural Business Collaborations. Her research approach is inclusive of broader business concern rather than being narrowly functional in orientation. The research style is one of close collaboration with business practitioners to marry the rigour of academic investigations with the need for practical relevance.

Sponsors and collaborators

My research is a work in progress and has a large potential impact on international enterprises’ decisions allowing them to prioritise and focus on their different business collaborators.

My research can also collaborate with other universities, such as Southampton, Cardiff, De Montfort and Plymouth in the UK. International network includes Shanghai Jiao Tong and Tsinghua University in China. In collaborating with industries, I gained valuable work experience, applying my academic skills in practice. It entailed working with top International/Chinese automotive groupings on projects of supply chain collaboration and business to business relationships.
