Dong, Wendy Wanxue(董婉雪)


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Decisions, Operations and Technology at the CUHK Business School. I hold a PhD in Information Systems from the McCombs School of Business, the University of Texas at Austin. My research aims to develop machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to solve business problems. Specifically, my recent projects develop novel ML and AI methods to evaluate workers’ decision accuracy and societal bias in many key domains including health care, fraud detection, fact checking, finance, and online labor markets. I earned a dual B.S. degree in Computer Science and Statistics from Purdue University, IN.
