I am an assistant professor at the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Minnesota. I obtained my PhD degree in Industrial Engineering in 2013 from the H. Milton School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech, working with Prof. Shabbir Ahmed and Prof. George L. Nemhauser. I got a master's degree in control science and engineering and a bachelor of science degree in automation, both from the Tsinghua University in China.


  • I co-organized with Anton Kleywegt from Georgia Tech a one-day workshop Smart Urban Transportation Forum, held on May 15, 2017 at the University of Minnesota.

  • Research Interests

    My main research interests are to solve large scale planning and dynamic operational problems in transportation and healthcare, with a methodological focus on optimization (integer and combinatorial optimization, global optimization, stochastic programming, etc.). Some of the projects I am working on right now include fleet management of self-driving trucks, bus workforce optimization, revenue management of on-line delivery systems, capacity design and information release of parking systems, and personalized cancer treatment design. Below are some brief introductions of the projects I have been working on.
