I am a third year Ph.D. student in H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering(ISyE) at Georgia Institute of Technology. I am very fortunate to be supervised by Professor Yao Xie and Professor George V. Moustakides. Before joining Georgia Tech, I received B.S. degree in statistics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2016.
