About me

headshot-wenyi-1I am an assistant professor at the Department of Logistics and Operations Management, HEC Montréal. I obtained my PhD from Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia. My core expertise lies at the intersection of data analytics and transportation operations. I am interested in developing cutting-edge methods to study passenger choice behaviors, using empirical methods and data-driven techniques. With a better understanding of travel behaviour, I try to derive prescriptive solutions for practical transportation and logistics problems and design transportation policies and systems for better outcomes. I also study how to enhance the resilience and adaptability of the vulnerable transportation infrastructure to climate change. In addition, I investigate the interactions among different transportation modes and provides insights on managing intermodal transportation systems. I have published in several peer-reviewed journals, including Transportation Research Part A/B. I won the Young Author Best Paper Prize at 14th World Conference on Transportation Research. My research has been funded by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FRQSC).

I am looking for two PhD students who will start in Fall 2023. If you are interested in doing a PhD with me, please send me an email. More details can be found here.
