Ideas:
“  My research seeks to address fundamental operations issues under the emerging trends in technology, marketplaces, and society. I am particularly enthusiastic about developing data-driven optimization and randomized experiment (a.k.a. A/B testing) methodologies to evaluate and optimize the operations strategies in the contexts of online platforms and marketplaces, sharing economy, and social networks, especially their recommendation, advertising, and pricing policies.  ”
