About Me

I'm an assistant professor in the School of Data Science and the School of Management and Economics (joint appointment) at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) from June 2021. Before that, I obtained my Ph.D. in the Decision, Risk, and Operations division at Columbia Business School, where I'm privileged to be advised by Yash Kanoria and Awi Federgruen. 

My research aims to address operational challenges arising in businesses and society, using tools from stochastic modeling, optimization, game theory, statistical physics, etc.. I particularly focus on the analysis and design of large matching markets, supply chain management, emission regulation, and online marketplaces.

Recently I've been working on matchmaking problems in online marketplaces in the face of inventory endogeneity on the supply side.
