About me

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. I have a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and a M.Sc. in Statistics from Georgia Tech (awarded May 2018), and a B.Sc. in Statistics and Actuarial Science from Simon Fraser University (awarded June 2013). My Ph.D. was jointly advised by Profs. C. F. Jeff Wu and V. Roshan Joseph.

My research focuses on developing methodologies with theoretical guarantees for big data reduction and small data analytics, and applying these methods within a systematic workflow to solve real-world problems. My broad research interests are in engineering statistics, machine learning and experimental design, with applications to mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, financial engineering, genetics, and signal processing.

My awards include the Mary G. and Joseph Natrella Scholarship, Alice and John Jarvis Research Award, ISyE Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Assistant Award, Governor General Academic Silver Medal, and best paper awards from ASA Section on Bayesian Statistical Science and INFORMS Quality, Reliability & Service section.
