Welcome to my homepage!

I am Patricia and George Schrapf Family Assistant Professor in Real Estate in the IT, Analytics, and Operations Department (ITAO) at the Mendoza College of Business of the University of Notre Dame.

Statistical theory powers data science. My research lies in the intersection of statistical learning and data-driven decision making with applications to revenue management, corporate governance, and real estate. A significant thrust of my research is on sequential decision-making (bandits, reinforcement learning), network analysis, model selection and post-selection inference. In addition, by constructing interfirm networks, such as dynamic equity investment networks of all 40 million firms in China (EquiNet), I study the network effect on firms' behaviors and decision-making.

I also enjoy teaching a modern data mining course at different levels, from undergraduates, graduates and MBAs, to executive education. I will be teaching urban analytics in Spring 2024.

I received my PhD in Statistics and Data Science from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 2022.
