Yu Yang

Yu Yang is a Ph.D. candidate in Operations Research at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering. His research interests lie in the intersection of operations management and optimization. He has been working on modeling and optimizing operations management problems in logistics and healthcare and on designing efficient algorithms, both theoretically and practically, for general optimization models. His research vision is to apply his solid mathematical modeling skills and expertise in optimization and data analysis to help various organizations make better decisions. His research has been centered around the following four research streams: 1) equipment management in logistics service networks; 2) treatment planning in radiation therapy for cancer treatment; 3) efficient solution schemes for classical integer programs (IPs); 4) non-convex optimization in machine learning (ML).
