Yunjian Xu completed his PhD degree at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems of MIT, under the supervision of Professor John N. Tsitsiklis. After graduation, I spent one year in the Center for the Mathematics of Information at California Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral scholar, working with Professors Katrina Ligett, Steven Low, and Adam Wierman.

In Aug 2013, I joined the Engineering Systems and Design pillar at Singapore University of Technology and Design as an assistant professor.




Blending concepts, models and techniques from control theory, probability theory, and game theory, my research spans a wide range of applied fields including energy systems and markets, cloud computing markets, manufacturing systems, and first-price auctions.

I am particularly interested in adapting mathematical modeling and analysis to the context of electricity markets and power systems.
