It's my extreme fortune to have several mentors who committed considerable energy to me both in education\research and my career. Inspired by William B. Haskell, my mentor that I admire most in research at NUS, the following three themes that he has been doing are now presented as my career philosophy.
Organization: The mission and the structure of the course and project should always be totally clear. The structure of the course should be carefully considered and precisely designed, based on universal principles wherever possible. Every lecture, assignment, and project should also be well organized with a clear objective.
Dedication: When I am teaching, I am there for the students’ benefit; when I am a mentor, I am there for the mentees’ benefit. I put my students and my mentees first because I believe in the value of their education.
Action: I have always learnt best by doing in both coursework and research, and I try to instill this philosophy in my students and mentees. In my courses, I try to show students how the course content is used in the field or in cutting edge research. As a mentor, I encourage my students to be confident and adventurous in their research because I feel it is the fastest way to grow.
William spent a lot of time with me and encouraged me so much. I do believe the way that he practicing is the great way to get along with students and I will try to carry his tradition forward in my career.
I work hard for my students and academic career.

I'm currently an Associate Research Fellow in the Department of Industrial Engineering at the Shandong University. Before that I served as a research fellow at Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering, National University of Singapore. I received my B.S. Industrial Engineering (Management) from Shandong University of Science & Technology in 2010. Then, I obtained M.S. and Ph.D. degrees of Industrial Engineering (Engineering) from the Chongqing University in 2012 and 2015, respectively.
