He is also a special consultant of the Innovative Architecture Center of the Architectural Design Institute of Tsinghua University, guiding the innovative planning and design of cities and buildings.
Professor Shen has published more than 100 journals, chapters and conference papers in international famous academic journals, conferences and research institutions in related fields (including international top and mainstream SCI, SSCI and EI journals including ijgis, JTG, PRs, LUP, TR, Nd, JRR, ijest, RURDS, SEPs, GA and ijstl). He once served as the main director of research fund projects exceeding US $20 million, led a number of major projects of the US Natural Science Foundation, the national Department of Transportation, the State Department of Transportation, and large logistics companies. The optimization model and system platform He presided over and developed about multi-time, multi-mode optimization and accurate global intelligent logistics transportation - International trade - economic development was in an international leading position, It has been highly praised by the National Academy of Sciences and the Department of transportation (FDOT, UTC, NAS / TRB). More than 20 research fund closing reports were written.
Professor Shen pays attention to academic and practical innovation. His representative innovative achievements include: (1) an algebraic method is proposed to solve the NP hard problem in 0-1 quadratic integer optimization, and has been successfully applied in hub spoke network model and smart city network analysis; (2) The global intelligent logistics transportation optimization model is connected with the government's industrial layout, enterprise location and economic development, regional coordination, international trade and international relations; (3) Share the logistics system platform, develop a new entity + e-commerce logistics model which contribute to all for one and one for all ; (4) Multi temporal and spatial urban risk and resilience model can be used for individual, government, and enterprise decision-making. (5) Air Courtyard Villa realizes the organic combination of villa and high-rise residence, creates a new residential form, and provides a planning and design solution for the urban sprawl dominated by global residential land; (6) The Intelligent Sunshine Light Guide System enables rooms in any building around the world to have south, east and west sunshine, including domestic north facing rooms and non-light rooms, completely changing the constraints of domestic residential community planning, especially the sunshine norms in residential design.
While conducting academic research, Professor Shen also pays attention to the combination of industry, study and research. Since 2003, he has successively founded American Coast-Coast Direct, LLC Logistics and Transportation Consulting Company (2003-2016), co founded Zhejiang Greentown Leap Architecture Design Ltd. (Comprehensive Grade A) and concurrently served as chief planning and design engineer (2006-2016). At present, the main research and development
products are Modern Air Courtyard Villa Innovative Residential System and Building Sunshine Light Guide System. In addition, Professor Shen has personally guided and participated in more than 30 architectural design, urban design, urban planning, transportation planning, regional planning and other projects at home and abroad, and won the planning and Design Competition awards for many times.
