About Me

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at Uber. In Fall 2020, I will be joining the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle as an Assistant Professor.

Previously, I'm a senior data scientist at the marketplace optimization group at Uber where I led the design and implementation of Uber's current version of rider surge pricing model.

My current research interest is in transportation and logistics, with a particular focus on optimization, data analytics and emerging problems under sharing economy.

I received my Ph.D. from the Operations Research Center at MIT in 2017 and my undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering from Tsinghua University.
