Dr. Rongbing Huang earned his Ph. D. in Operations Management from the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. Dr. Huang received his master degree in Management Information Systems from Fudan University, Shanghai and served as a software engineer in China for almost two years. Rongbing’s research interests include Location Theory, Combinatorial Optimization, Service Management and Online Auction. The courses Rongbing teaches on Quantitative Methods, Decision Analysis, and eCommerce benefit from not only his research but also his experience with online insurance in China. Dr. Huang’s work has been published/accepted in the Journal of the Operational Research Society, European Journal of Operational Research and Computers & Operations Research.
