Kellogg School of Management

Northwestern University


Hello! I'm Yue


I am a fifth-year doctoral candidate in Operations Management at the Kellogg School of Management in Northwestern University, advised by Professor Jan A. Van Mieghem and Professor Itai Gurvich.  


My research generally focuses on people-centric operations. I build empirical models to understand and measure people behavior in online/offline communities, with the goal of developing interventions to support people's collaboration and to improve people's productivity. My work involves first-hand data--both quantitative and qualitative--in the industry of healthcare and analytics. I have been actively collaborating with hospitals, the Fortune-500 e-commerce company and the tech start-up.
