About Me

Welcome! I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at the Department of Data Sciences and Operations in USC Marshall School of Business and expect to graduate in May 2020. Starting Fall 2020, I will be joining UIUC Gies College of Business as an Assistant Professor.

My research addresses how e-commerce platforms can leverage the logistics infrastructure as an offline platform for commercial activities such as promotion and advertisement. Since May 2018, I have been working as a Data Scientist at Alibaba Group---one of the world’s largest e-commerce platforms. In close collaboration with the platform and several major brands, I design large-scale field experiments and develop data-driven optimization to explore innovative business models and generate value.
