I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Data Science at the College of William & Mary.
My research is focused on service operations and interpretable decision making in innovative business models. I am particularly interested in integrating mathematical modeling with data science to derive practical decision support tools that have solid theoretical foundations.
I received my Ph.D. in Operations Management at Simon Business School, University of Rochester, under the supervision of Professor Yaron Shaposhnik.
Research (Reverse chronological order)
The Impact of the Zero-COVID Policy and its Implication on Scheduling Supply Delivery
with Colin Tang (undergraduate student); in Progress
One-Sentence Summary: I propose capacity sharing strategy for service systems with worker shortages, which leads to significant cost-savings compared with a benchmark rule that staffs each unit independently.
Waiting-Time Prediction with Invisible Customers
with Yoav Kerner, Ricky Roet-Green, Arik Senderovich and Yaron Shaposhnik (Major revision, M&SOM; latest draft)
One-Sentence Summary: We derive accurate predictions for patients' waiting times in a queue, when the system predictor only observes partial queue length.
One-Sentence Summary: We apply queueing theory and machine learning (ML) to derive interpretable prediction rules for ICU capacity issues in short term.
One-Sentence Summary: We study the impact of the invisible queue in an omnichannel system on throughput and social welfare, where customers strategically decide to join or balk.
