Personal profile


Tsz Fai (Vincent) Chow is a research assistant professor at the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies of PolyU, Hong Kong. He received his PhD and MPhil in Systems Engineering and Engineering Management and BSc in Statistics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2021, 2018, and 2016, respectively. Prior to joining PolyU, he was a postdoctoral fellow at CUHK.

Broadly speaking, his research interest includes all operations management problems that can be modeled as linear or mixed-integer programs. Applications considered in his work include surgery blocks allocation in healthcare, manpower (re)allocation in public transit, and facility location problems.

He is constantly looking for ways that operations management, deep learning, and statistics can go together. In particular, his current research involves the use of reinforcement learning in combinatorial problems which are notoriously hard to optimize.
