About me:

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences at Northwestern University. My research interests are at the interface of applied probability and service operations management. My current focus is on developing efficient simulation algorithms to facilitate better decision-making in complex stochastic systems. I also use stochastic modeling to analyze and optimize service system operations. I am particularly interested in patient flow management in healthcare systems.


I received my Ph.D. in Operations Research from Columbia University in 2014. I did my undergraduate in Actuarial Science at Hong Kong University. [Ph.D. Thesis]
