Dr. Yu Yang

Assistant Professor in Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Florida
Ph.D., Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020

Yu Yang received his B.S. in Applied Mathematics from the School of Mathematical Sciences, Peking University, in 2016 and his Ph.D. in Operations Research from the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, in 2020. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Florida. His research interests lie broadly in discrete and continuous optimization. His current focus is on efficiently solving optimization models both theoretically and practically. He is actively recruiting Ph.D. students with a solid mathematical background and a good coding skill in C++. Qualified students will be working on the following research topics: 1) exact methods for stochastic vehicle routing problems with time windows (SVRPTW); 2) high dimensional stochastic programming algorithms with provable convergence rates; 3) treatment optimization in volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VRP). 4real-time management of micromobility services for smart cities.
