Dr. Yuli Zhangfrom Tsinghua University Visited BUAA SEM and Gave a Seminar, “DistributionallyRobust Optimization and its Applications”, on 27th September, 2017. Prof. QiongTian chaired this seminar. Other participants were Prof. Tian-Liang Liu, Prof. Chen-LanWang and postgraduate students of SEM.

Dr. Yuli Zhang summarizedhis past research and discussed the recent developments and prospects of robustoptimization approaches.Dr. YuliZhang introduced the impact of mean-covariance information of uncertain factorson system performance and delivered interesting managerial insights, discussed hisnewly proposed parametric search algorithm, which provides an exact andflexible solution framework for distributionally robust optimization modelswith orders of magnitude speedup over state-of-the-art algorithms; shared someresearch ideas and research methods.  

After Dr. Zhang’stalk, he answered teachers and students’ questions. At last, Dr. Zhang had agood discussion with us. This seminar is fruitful, and it will be helpful for ourmodeling and algorithm of robust optimization in the future.

Bio:Dr.Yuli Zhang received his M.S., and Ph.D.degrees from the Department of Automation, Tsinghua University in 2014.
