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 analyze big data and to study passenger behaviors, such as choices of transportation modes, choices of connecting airport, and passengers’ purchasing behaviors at the airport. I am also interested in deriving prescriptive solutions for practical transportation and logistics problems using data-driven techniques.

I have published in several peer-reviewed journals including Transportation Research Part B: Methodological, Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, Journal of Air Transport Management. I won the Young Author Best Paper Prize at 14th World Conference on Transportation Research. I have been awarded the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship (one of the most prestigious doctoral scholarships in Canada) for three years: 2017–2020.
