  • About Me

    I am a fourth-year doctoral student in Operations and Manufacturing Management at Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis. My advisors are Professor Nan Yang and Professor Fuqiang Zhang. I am broadly interested in providing in-depth theoretical analysis to practical problems from an operations management perspective, and developing effective methodology for such analysis. In particular, I am thrilled by the problems that highlight the inter-temporal interactions of decision making under an uncertain (and possiblly competitive) environment. During my PhD study, I have been working on dynamic pricing and inventory management, dynamic competition, dynamic supply risk management, sustainable operations, and strategic customer behavior.

    Before joining Olin Business School, I finished my undergraduate study in mathematics at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Peking University in 07/2011.
