Academic and work experience
Prior to MS&E, I did my undergraduate study at the School of the Gifted Young at University of Science and Technology of China, majoring in Mathematics & Applied Mathematics with the Probability & Statistics track. My previous academic experiences made me believe that advanced mathematical, statistical, and computational techniques can gain us profound insights into designing models and algorithms to make better decisions across multiple disciplines. All these motivate me to pursue a PhD in MS&E.
Impact I hope to have in my field and the world
Motivated by the fantastic area of operations research, I bear the goal in mind to explore and innovate modern statistics and machine learning methods for data-driven decision making for addressing real-world challenges.
Interests and hobbies
Piano, table tennis, traveling, etc.
