Ideas:
“  My research addresses fundamental operations issues under the emerging trends in technology, marketplaces, and society. I am particularly enthusiastic about developing data science methodologies (e.g., data-driven optimization, causal inference, and machine learning) 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.  ”
