Weidong Chen is a Ph.D. candidate whose research focuses on the stochastic optimization for inventory control and revenue management problems. In particular, he designs online learning algorithms for stochastic inventory models without knowing any distribution assumption as a priori and shows that the proposed algorithm converges to the optimal policy with the best rate guarantee.
