Xiaolei Fang

Assistant Professor

My research interests lie in the field of industrial data analytics for High-Dimensional and Big Data applications in the energy, manufacturing, and service sectors. Specifically, I focus on addressing analytical, computational, and scalability challenges associated with the development of statistical and optimization methodologies for analyzing massive amounts of complex data structures for real-time asset management and optimization.
