Assistant Professor
421B Thomas Building



I am an assistant professor at the Department of Statistics and Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering of Penn State University.

I received my PhD in Operations Research and Financial Engineering from Princeton University. During my time at Princeton, I was extremely fortunate to have Profs. Han Liu and Robert Vanderbei as my advisors. Before going to Princeton, I got my bachelor's degree from National University of Singapore, where I had the privilege to write my undergraduate thesis under the supervision of Prof. Kim-Chuan Toh. Prior to my college life, I spent three wonderful years at Chengdu No.7 High School.

I work on different problems from both statistical and computational perspectives. You can find my manuscripts and awards below.

Besides academic awards, I am particularly proud of my Breathtaking Talent Award given by Princeton Graduate School, where the citation of this award is

"For a person who has a phenomenal talent outside of their academic ability, they have 'wow-ed' us with their talents and shown us the range of ability that we have in our community."
