Yujia Jin

I am a second-year PhD student in the Department of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford in the Operations Research group, advised by Aaron Sidford.

I am broadly interested in optimization problems, sometimes in the intersection with machine learning theory and graph applications. I enjoy understanding the theoretical ground of many algorithms that are of practical importance.

Prior to coming to Stanford, I received my Bachelor's degree in Applied Math at Fudan University, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Zhongzhi Zhang. From 2016 to 2018, I also worked in Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences (RIIS) at SHUFE, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Dongdong Ge.
