Qi brings to Jensen a decade of naval architecture, marine engineering and shipyard expertise, the company says. Before joining Jensen he worked as a naval architect at Incat Crowther, of Morgan City, La., a diversified naval architecture group, and served as a senior naval architect for Derecktor Shipyard in Bridgeford, Conn.
“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 in a Jensen press release. “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 of the China Academy of Fishery Services in Shanghai; and a junior naval architect for Dongfeng Shipyard in Qingdao, China.
Qi earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fishing engineering, with a specialization in fishing vessels, from the Ocean University of China. He later went on to attain his Ph. D. in ocean engineering, with a major in naval architecture.
