Research Areas

  • Data-Driven Decision-Making
  • Decision-Making under Uncertainty
  • Cooperative Game Theory
  • Risk Management

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Management Sciences, College of Business, City University of Hong Kong. I obtained a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Tsinghua University and a Ph.D. degree in Management from the National University of Singapore. I was a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Management at the Imperial College Business School.


My primary research interests include (1) decision-making under uncertainty with different levels of data availability and its applications in decision analysis, operations management, and engineering; (2) cooperative game theory for joint activities and its applications in production economics, resource pooling, and risk management.


I am keen on developing packages for analytics under uncertainty and I have been actively working on the project "Robust Stochastic Optimization Made Easy (RSOME)" (MATLAB, Python).
