About Me

I am a Ph.D student in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University. Before my doctoral study starting 2014, I received my B.Eng in microelectronics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2011, a double-major B.Economics from Peking University, Beijing, China in 2012, and an M.Eng in Operations Research in 2014. My Ph.D advisor is Prof. Peter I. Frazier joint with Prof Krishnamurthy Iyer.

Research Interests

I have a broad interest in the areas of sequential decision making under uncertainty, optimization under uncertainty, machine learning and game theory. Currently at Cornell my research is about optimal decision making for agents in a large network with nodes associated with random rewards varying with time, a problem that lies in the intersection of stochastic dynamic programming and game theory.
