About Me

I'm excited to join the School of Data Science and the School of Management and Economics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) as an assistant professor (starting 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, random graph theory, statistical physics, and so on. I particularly focus on the analysis and design of large matching markets, supply chain management, and customer relationship management. Recently I'm also working on operational problems in Carbon markets.
