Johns Hopkins Carey Business School
Welcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management and Business Analytics at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. I obtained my Ph. D. degree in Business Administration in the field of Operations Management at the Fuqua School of Business, Duke University.
Before joining Duke, I obtained a master's degree from Cornell University, a master's degree from Yale University, and two bachelor's degrees from Peking University in Beijing, China.
I am broadly interested in designing and analyzing data-driven algorithms to facilitate decision making under uncertainty.
I leverage and develop many statistical/machine learning methods, including deep learning, and combine them with dynamic pricing, inventory control, and optimization to solve complex operational problems in the big data era. My work advances the theoretical foundation of various data-driven analytics and significantly improves the performance in real applications across multiple industries, including grocery retailing, energy, and digital platforms.
