About Me

I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the Decision, Risk, and Operations division at Columbia Business School, where I'm privileged to be advised by Yash Kanoria and co-advised by Awi Federgruen.

My research uses stochastic modeling and optimization to address operational challenges that arise in businesses and society. Specific directions include the analysis and design of large matching markets, and the optimization of tactical decisions such as supply chain management and customer relationship management.

I'm on the 2020-2021 academic job market. You can reach my at jlu20@gsb.columbia.edu.
