About me

I am currently a PhD student in the University of Michigan, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department, majoring in Control Systems, under the guidance of Professor Semyon M. Meerkov. I received the B.S.E degree in Mechanical Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), China, in 2016.

Research

My research interests include:

  • Stochastic System Analysis and Control,

  • Application of Probability Theory,

  • Optimization,

  • Machine Learning.

Dissertation (In Preparation)

The (α, β) Precision Theory for Production System Monitoring and Improvement. Committee members: Semyon M. Meerkov, Roman Kapuscinski, S. Sandeep Pradhan, Lei Ying.
