I am passionate about healthcare. My research examines incentives of hospitals, pharmaceutical firms, physicians, and patients, and how these incentives, often deeply intertwined, govern some of the most vexing issues in healthcare operations.
Alongside research on healthcare, my theoretical interests have brought me intellectual excitements along the "perimeter" of the operations management "proper." I have been working on problems in the interfaces between marketing and operations, as well as those related to operations in Artificial Intelligence (AI). My work has been published in leading journals such as Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Operations Research, and INFORMS Journal on Computing.
Together with my colleague Ozge Sahin, I organized the inaugural Johns Hopkins Symposium on Healthcare Operations, an effort to bring together leading health policy makers, physicians/surgeons, and operations researchers.
At Johns Hopkins, I have been teaching Operations Management and Supply and Service Contracting at the MBA level.
Before joining Johns Hopkins in 2013, I received PhD (2013) and MSIA (2009) in Operations Management/Robotics, jointly offered by Tepper School of Business and Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University. I also received an MPhil from Department of Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2006.
