Jue Wang 

I am an Associate Professor of Management Analytics at Smith School of Business, Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario, Canada. 

My research interest is Biodiversity Analytics. I use quantitative approaches such as stochastic optimization, machine learning, and game theory to improve management decisions in biodiversity conservation. 

I received my PhD from the University of Toronto. I am currently spending my sabbatical year at Cornell University. 

The Hainan gibbon is the rarest primate on the planet, with only 39 individuals known today.  Working with conservation biologists at the Hainan Tropical Rainforest National Park, we use operations research and AI approaches to optimize the conservation of this flagship species.
