Personal website: LinLi-KSU
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, and I also lead the Robust Analytics and System Simulation (RASS) lab. I got my Ph.D in Operations Research from Columbia University and later worked at IBM research center in New York and Sabre Inc in Dallas. I taught part-time in 2014 at department of Information and Operations Management of Mays business school at Texas A&M university. My current research focuses on applying systems engineering tools in healthcare domain to reduce health disparity and improve patient care outcomes. I apply tools and methods from data science, algorithmic & simulation techniques, as well as theories from social sciences to study the emerging issues in both strategic and operational levels. I am married with 3 kids and I love cooking, hiking and spending time with my family.
