Biography:

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in marketing (Quantitative Methods) at the Pennsylvania State University, working under the direction of Dr. Wayne DeSarbo and Dr. Duncan Fong. I have also earned my Master’s degree in Statistics under the guidance of Dr. David Hunter in May 2017. My research interests broadly cover modeling time dynamics in relevant marketing problems. Time dynamics may be in the consumer decision making process, or in firms’ strategy and performance. I have worked on developing new models for the former in my thesis for my concurrent Master degree in Statistics and the latter in my dissertation for my Ph.D. in Marketing.

Dynamic Segmentation, Dynamic Models, Bayesian Statistics, Competitive Strategy, Consumer Choice, Machine Learning
