About Me

Hello, welcome to my page!

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics at Illinois Institute of Technology. I am also the Associate Director of the Master of Data Science Program at IIT.

My research interests are in developing statistical theories and methodologies, as well as their applications in science and engineering. I have taught and developed courses on statistical learning, Bayesian statistics, time series, and regression methods, etc.

I received a Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering from the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in 2010. I also hold an M.S. degree in Operations Research and a B.S. in Mathematics.
