Hi, welcome~

I am currently an Assistant Professor (Research) in the Department of Industrial Systems Engineering and Management, National University of Singapore (NUS). I got B.Eng. in Automation from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2012 and Ph.D. in IEOR from NUS in 2017.

I aim to conduct high-quality research and meanwhile solving real-world problems and contributing the society. My research interests are:

  • Methodology development in simulation, optimization and simulation-optimization integration;
  • Applied Operations Research and Data Analytics in smart transportation and logistics systems, such as automated transportation systems, autonomous systems, automated warehouse and logistics center, etc.

Currently I am also leading the research team at Centre of Excellence in Modelling and Simulation for Next Generation Ports, NUS. My team has around 15 talented researchers and engineers, and is working closely with government agencies and world leading companies, e.g., Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, PSA, Jurong Port, Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Limited, etc.

I am very interested to have research collaborations, and feel free to approach me if you share the same goal 🙂
