Personal statement

I am broadly interested in Combinatorial Optimization in manufacturing with particular emphasis on Assembly Line Balancing area. My research generally involves the design of the intelligent production systems, applied mathematical modelling of manufacturing and industrial system, and algorithm development. I am the principal investigator for 1 project under National Natural Science Foundation of China and 1 project under Beijing Social Science Foundation.
