The Institute of Applied Optimization welcomes Dr. Zijun Wu [吴自军], who today has officially joined our team as Associate Professor. Before joining our institute, he was an Assistant Professor at the Beijing Institute for Scientific and Engineering Computing (BISEC) [北京科学与工程计算研究院] of the Beijing University of Technology (BJUT) [北京工业大学] in Beijing [北京], China. He received his Ph.D. in Operations Research from the Clausthal University of Technology (Technische Universität Clausthal) in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany in 2015 and his M.Sc. in Pure Mathematics from the Sichuan University [四川大学], Chengdu, Sichuan [四川], China in 2010. Dr. Wu is an expert in Traffic Optimization (traffic analysis and congestion pricing), Operations Research (evolutionary algorithms, NP-hard problems, simulation-based optimization), Statistics and Machine Learning (stochastic process, time series forecasting, clustering and neural networks), Mathematics (measure and probability), and Theoretical Computer Science (theory of natural inspired computing).
We are very happy to have Dr. Wu in our team and look forward to working together on many interesting applications of optimization methods.
