Research and Publications

 

During my Ph.D. studies at UCLA Anderson School of Management, I have explored new challenges in Mass Customization and Electricity Peak Load Demand Management. I have also been working on Multiple Objective Optimization since 2012 and Assembly Line Balancing since 2010.
