Hi there. My name is Liyuan Cao. I am from China. You can call me Leon if you do not know how to pronounce my name.
I have been a doctoral student at the Industrial & Systems Engineering Department at Lehigh University since 2016. I obtained my Master’s Degree from the same department before I joined its Ph.D. program. And I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering & Automation from the College of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering at Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics.
I work with Dr. Katya Scheinberg on derivative free optimization.
