I am an assistant professor at the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Minnesota. I earned a PhD in Industrial Engineering from the H. Milton School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech, an MS in Control Science and Engineering and a BS in Automation, both from the Tsinghua University.


  • 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 goal is to design new algorithms and tools to improve the planning and operational practices in transportation and healthcare. The projects I've worked on and have been working on include energy-efficient vehicle routing and scheduling, public transit workforce optimization, data-driven fleet management, capacity design and information release of parking systems, design of on-demand delivery systems, and personalized cancer treatment. The common theme of these projects is to develop new models, efficient algorithms, and practical tools and software to bridge the gap between massive available data and complex decision making. Below is a brief introduction to some of these projects.
