“We are confident that Jianjun will prove to be yet another asset to the Jensen team and to our diverse clients in the Gulf,” said Fifi. “He is uniquely qualified for the position because of his hands-on experience in shipyard operations and his background in advanced hydrodynamic analysis. He also comes to us with significant experience in the design and operations of fishing vessels in Asia.”
Before working for Incat Crowther and Derecktor Shipyard, Qi held the positions of research assistant for Davidson Laboratory of the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J.; assistant research professor at the East China Sea Fisheries Research Institute, part the China Academy of Fishery Services in Shangai; and a junior naval architect for Dongfeng Shipyard in Qingdao, China.
