Zhengyuan Zhou joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Technology, Operations and Statistics in September 2020.

Professor Zhou’s research interests lie at the intersection of machine learning, stochastic optimization, control and game theory, and focus on leveraging tools from those fields to develop methodological frameworks to solve data-driven decision-making problems.

Before joining NYU Stern, Professor Zhou spent the year 2019-2020 as a Goldstine research fellow at IBM research and a visiting scholar at NYU Stern.

Professor Zhou received his BA in Mathematics and BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, both from UC Berkeley. Subsequently, he has received a Master’s in Computer Science, a Master’s in Statistics, a Master’s in Economics and a PhD in Electrical Engineering (with minors in Mathematics and Management Science & Engineering), all from Stanford University in 2019.
