I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences at Northwestern University. I am currently looking for an academic research position starting in Fall 2019.

My research focuses on the theory of optimization under uncertainty, specifically in stochastic programming and robust optimization, with its applications in supply chain and logistics, disaster relief, energy systems and sports analytics.


  • November, 2018: I gave two talks at the INFORMS Annual Meeting, Phoenix, AZ. (Talk 1) (Talk 2).
  • September, 2018: I will teach IEMS 313: Foundation of Optimization in Fall quarter of 2018.
  • July, 2018: I gave a presentation about Project Crashing Optimization under Stochastic Disruption at ISMP, Bordeaux, France.
