Prospective Undergraduate Students

We are always interested in hosting undergraduate summer research interns or having motivated undergraduate students join the lab during the academic year. UofA undergraduate students with strong interest in math/theory are particularly welcome. Usually, it is recommended to take some kind of individual study course to get used to reading papers. Email your CV and transcript to $ \textsf{} $ if you are interested.

Prospective Graduate Students

We are constantly looking for highly motivated graduate students at both the MSc and PhD level. If you are already at UofA and want to join us, feel free to email your CV to $ \textsf{} $. For prospective students who are not currently enrolled at UofA, read Dr. Tan’s Letter to Prospective Students first before reaching out.

Prospective Postdoctoral Research Fellows

We are looking for postdocs who are interested in the area of optimization and decision-making under uncertainty, including (but not limited to) online algorithms, online learning, stochastic modeling and optimization, algorithmic game theory, and mechanism design. If you are interested in joining the lab as a postdoc, please send your CV to $\textsf{}$. We might get back to you if there is a match in background and research interests (subject to funding availability).

Prospective Visitors

We welcome visitors from a range of disciplines such as computer science, applied mathematics, statistics, electrical engineering, operations research, and economics. If you believe we share some common research interest and want to visit the lab, feel free to reach out.
