About Me

I am a final-year Ph.D. candidate in Computational Science and Engineering under supervision of Professor David Simchi-Levi. I am affiliated with Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems and Center for Computational Science & Engineering at MIT. I hold two master's, one in EECS and one in Transportation both from MIT. 

I am on the 2021-2022 academic job market. [CV]

I have worked as research intern/researcher for the following companies on various projects: Accenture, Alibaba, Blue Yonder, Home Depot, Yihaodian. My recent project with Blue Yonder has resulted in a novel mom-and-pop delivery solution with provable guarantees. I presented this work at the INFORMS annual meeting this year: this is the link of the recorded video. 

In case you are too busy, here is the gist of my talk/work in one sentence: we showed for the first time, the Flexibility Folklore Theorem holds for Stochastic Vehicle Routing -- a small amount of flexibility goes a long way.

Prior to attending MIT, I received two bachelor degrees in Industrial Engineering and Mathematics from Tsinghua University, where I was advised by Professor Hai Jiang and Professor Liping Zhang for my undergraduate theses.
