Yu (Chelsea) Jin

Assistant Professor

Systems Science and Industrial Engineering

Background

Yu "Chelsea" Jin received her BS degree in 2014 from the Department of Information Science and Technology at Jinan University in Guangzhou, China. In 2015, she received her ME degree in manufacturing engineering from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. She earned her PhD degree in industrial engineering at the University of Arkansas - Fayetteville in May 2020, and she will join Binghamton University as an assistant professor in Fall 2020. Her research focuses on sensing and analytics, advanced manufacturing, data mining and machine learning for manufacturing and service applications. She received the IISE Gilbreth Memorial Fellowship in both 2018 and 2019; the Kuroda Graduate Fellowship in Engineering and Graduate Research Award in 2019 and the Outstanding Graduate Student Award in 2020 from the University of Arkansas. Her work has been published in IISE Transactions and ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering. She is an active member of IISE and INFORMS, and she served as the president of the INFORMS student chapter at the University of Arkansas.
