About Me

Chiwei Yan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at the University of California, Berkeley. Previously, he taught at the University of Washington Seattle and was a senior data scientist at the marketplace optimization group at Uber where he designed rider surge pricing algorithm. He received his Ph.D. from the Operations Research Center at MIT and his undergraduate degree (with summa cum laude) in Industrial Engineering from Tsinghua University.

His research centers around transportation and logistics systems, with a recent focus on emerging problems in online platforms. He also has a particular interest in air transportation systems. His work aims to study fundamental properties of these problems and propose (data-driven) practical solutions for implementation. When analyzing these problems, he is broadly interested in tools from optimization, game theory, stochastic modeling and statistics.

I serve as an associate editor for Operations Research and Transportation Science.
