I’m Xueze Song, a fifth year Ph.D. student in Operations Management at the Gies College of Business, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My research is dedicated to healthcare operations with two primary focuses: (1) how to improve participant retention in clinical studies and (2) how to design state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to advance decision-making. I received my bachelor’s degree in Management Science from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China.

I will be joining the Department of Information Systems, Statistics, and Management Science (ISM) at the Culverhouse College of Business, The University of Alabama as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2024!
