I'm a sixth-year Ph.D. candidate in Supply Chain, Operations and Technology at Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis. I received my B.S. in economics from Peking Univesity in 2015, and M.S. in operations research from UNC at Chapel Hill in 2017.

My research focuses on studying innovative technologies and policies in the supply chain context. Specifically, on supply side, how emerging technologies (e.g., Blockchain & Smart Contract) affect the supply chain efficiency. On demand side, how privacy policies alter the intereaction between upstream firms and downstream consumers, and therefore affect the consumer welfare.

Moreover, I also work on empirical contexts including consumption and purchase in online retail platforms, quantifiying the economic impact of policy implementations.
