I hold multiple administrative roles at the Foisie Business School, including Assistant Dean, Interim Department Head, and Area Head for Operations and Industrial Engineering (OIE). For my first two roles, I oversee the School’s AACSB related efforts for continuous improvement; coordinate the collaborations with other academic units on campus as well as with global partners; and manage and improve all the degree programs pertinent to various facets such as faculty, curriculum, student, alumni, and employers. As the Area Head for the OIE Program, I am in charge of undergraduate Industrial Engineering curriculum and graduate Operations Management curriculum; program improvement; faculty recruitment and development/mentoring; industry/business outreach and OIE advisory board; and ABET accreditation maintenance.
I earned my Ph.D. in Business Administration from Pennsylvania State University, an M.S. in Industrial Engineering from University of Washington, and a B.S. in Industrial Management Engineering from Beihang University, China.
