Dr. Zhou's research interests lie in theory, methods, and applications of simulation optimization and stochastic control. She currently works on the development of efficient algorithms for (i) optimizing and predicting performance of complex systems that are described by stochastic simulation models, and (ii) solving dynamic decision-making problems under uncertainty and driven by data. Her research is at the interface of simulation, control, and optimization. The application areas of her research include financial engineering, inventory control, and systems biology.
