Yiling Chen (Professor)

Yiling conducts research at the intersection between computer science and economics — an exciting, fun, and growing field. She loves teaching AM 121 because it is fascinating to see the elegant math behind the highly applicable optimization techniques and it feels even better to explain it.

Dennis Bao

Dennis is a senior living in Mather House studying Applied Mathematics and Economics. Dennis originally hails from Minnesota, which explains his long-suffering Vikings and Timberwolves fandom, though his family now resides in Southern California. Dennis particularly enjoys the application of the theory learned in AM121 to business operational decisions. Outside of the classroom, he also captains the alpine ski team.
