Non-tariff and overall protection: evidence across countries and over time (2018)
Journal Article
Niu, Z., Liu, C., Gunessee, S., & Milner, C. (2018). Non-tariff and overall protection: evidence across countries and over time. Review of World Economics, 154(4), 675–703. doi:10.1007/s10290-018-0317-5

This paper analyzes the evolution of the incidence and intensity of non-tariff measures (NTMs). It extends earlier work by measuring protection from NTMs over time from a newly available database and provides evidence on the evolution of NTMs. In par... Read More

Analysis of liquid–liquid droplets fission and encapsulation in single/two layer microfluidic devices fabricated by xurographic method (2017)
Journal Article
Lim, C. N., Koh, K. S., Ren, Y., Chin, J. K., Shi, Y., & Yan, Y. (2017). Analysis of liquid–liquid droplets fission and encapsulation in single/two layer microfluidic devices fabricated by xurographic method. Micromachines, 8(2), doi:10.3390/mi8020049. ISSN 2072-666X

This paper demonstrates a low cost fabrication approach for microscale droplet fission and encapsulation. Using a modified xurography method, rapid yet reliable microfluidic devices with flexible designs (single layer and double layer) are developed... Read More

Review of sustainable service-based business models in the Chinese truck sector (2016)
Journal Article
Pallaro, E., Subramanian, N., Abdulrahman, M. D., Liu, C., & Tan, K. H. (in press). Review of sustainable service-based business models in the Chinese truck sector. Sustainable Production and Consumption, doi:10.1016/j.spc.2016.07.003. ISSN 2352-5509

Growth of global sales of new trucks in emerging economies is substantial however, in China the growth of sales is expected to be only 1% for 2014–2024. The limited sales growth forecast and an intense market competition make it imperative for truck... Read More

Viability of remanufacturing practice: a strategic decision making framework for Chinese auto-parts companies (2014)
Journal Article
Abdulrahman, M. D., Subramanian, N., Liu, C., & Shu, C. (2015). Viability of remanufacturing practice: a strategic decision making framework for Chinese auto-parts companies. Journal of Cleaner Production, 105, doi:10.1016/j.jclepro.2014.02.065. ISSN 0959-6526

Remanufacturing is a sustainable and proven profitable practice in the western world. Research on remanufacturing practices is relatively unexploited in China, despite being the “global factory” and both the world's largest automobile manufacturer an... Read More
