I am an Assistant Professor of Business Analytics at Carroll School of Management, Boston College. I received my PhD in Operations Management at NYU Stern School of Business. My research interests fall into the intersection of data-driven operations, machine learning, and decision analytics, with applications in car-sharing, ride-hailing, and retail industries. More broadly, I strive to develop methodologies by combining data analytics with mathematical modeling which could lead companies to make effective operational decisions. In my work, I have used tools from data-driven optimization, choice modeling, machine learning, econometrics, and Bayesian inference. Overall, my research can be divided into two main topics: data-driven problems with choice models and operations in ride-hailing.
