  • Short Biography

    Born in Chengdu, China, I got my B.S. degree in mathematics from School of Mathematical Sciences, Peking University in 07/2011 (photo here). I am pursuing my doctoral degree in operations and manufacturing management at Olin Business School. As an operations researcher, I am interested in providing in-depth theoretical analysis to practical problems and developing methodology for such analysis. My research interests spread a wide scope of operations research and management science. In particular, I am thrilled by the analysis of the problems that highlight the inter-temporal interactions of decision making under an uncertain environment, such as dynamic pricing and inventory management, dynamic game, dynamic mechanism design, and online optimization. See the Biography page for more about my experiences, and the Research page for my papers and talks.
