Biography

I received a PhD in operations research from MIT in 2009, a PhD in mathematics from the University of Notre Dame in 2006, and a BS in applied mathematics from Tsinghua University in 2002. My research interest is to use optimization  and statistical models to solve real world problems. I joined CityU in the summer of 2009 and now a professor at  department of management science.
