About Me

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Analytics and Operations (DAO), NUS Business School. I am also affiliated with the Institute of Operations Research and Analytics (IORA) at NUS.

I primarily work on information acquisition and aggregation for platforms and markets. I am particularly interested in making the process efficient and protected from strategic disruptions. Specifically, I have worked on the following topics:

    • optimal design of sequential experiments;

    • learning against strategically manipulated information.

I am also interested in operations management for e-commerce platforms, such as demand fulfillment.
