About Me

Hi there, my name is Bo Lin (林博). I am a PhD student at the Applied Optimization Lab and Sustainable Systems Research Group at University of Toronto. I am fortunately advised by Dr. Timothy Chan and Dr. Shoshanna Saxe. Prior to joining UofT, I completed my M.A.Sc. at University of Waterloo where I worked with Dr. Bissan Ghaddar and Dr. Jatin Nathwani. I obtained my B.Eng. at Tsinghua University.

In June-Sep 2023, I interned at Uber as an Applied Scientist, researching online marketplaces and advertising platforms. In Jan-Aug 2022, I was a research intern at Esri Canada under the SMART Mobility projects.

I am interested in the sustainable operation of transportation systems. I design scalable algorithms and decision-making tools that improve transportation efficiency and equity, environmental wellness, and the social good.
