Short Bio

Baoyu Zhou is an incoming Assistant Professor in the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence at Arizona State University. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Michigan (Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering) and the University of Chicago (Booth School of Business), working with Professors Albert S. Berahas, Haihao Lu, and John R. Birge. He received his doctoral and master's degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) from Lehigh University, advised by Professor Frank E. Curtis. Before joining Lehigh, he received his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He was a Givens Associate in the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory and a Research Intern at Facebook AI Research. He won the Van Hoesen Family Best Publication Award at Lehigh ISE Department in 2021 and received the Elizabeth V. Stout Dissertation Award at the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science in 2022. His research focuses on developing, analyzing, and implementing efficient algorithms for solving large-scale optimization problems that are potentially nonlinear, stochastic, and constrained.
