Rob J. WangDepartment of Management Science and Engineering,
I hold an M.S. in Statistics from Stanford University and a B.Sc. (Honours) in Mathematics from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario (Canada).
My research focuses on queueing theory, convergence rates to equilibrium for Markov processes, and large deviations. I am also interested in applied problems related to dynamic pricing and revenue management.
I am grateful to have been supported by an Arvanitidis Stanford Graduate Fellowship (SGF) in Memory of William K. Linvill, as well as NSERC Postgraduate Scholarships (PGS M + PGS D) during my studies.
At Stanford, I have served as a Course Assistant (CA) for MS&E 321 Stochastic Systems, MS&E 322 Stochastic Calculus and Control, OIT 247 Optimization and Simulation Modeling (Accelerated), and OIT 668 Dynamic Pricing and Revenue Management. In Spring 2016, I was also the instructor for MS&E 121 Introduction to Stochastic Modeling.
From June to September 2016, I was a data science intern on the Business Travel team at Airbnb in San Francisco.
