Yuanzhe Ma

Yuanzhe joined the IEOR department in Fall 2021 as a PhD student after completing his dual MS in Statistics and Mathematics from Georgia Tech, where he worked on projects related to random matrix theory and the transient analysis of stochastic systems. Prior to that, he was working in a Fintech startup in China and obtained an undergraduate degree in economics from East China Normal University while working full-time. His research interest lies in the intersection of applied probability and optimization theory with applications to data science. For example, he is interested in non-convex optimization theory and robust analysis of stochastic systems.
