CKYC College Master – Prof. Janny Leung May Yee

Prof. Janny Leung obtained an S.B. degree in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University, an M.A. in Mathematics from Oxford University and a Ph.D. in Operations Research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1986). Before returning to Hong Kong in 1996, she was a faculty member at Yale University and the University of Arizona.

Her main research interests are combinatorial optimization, transportation logistics and operational research. In Hong Kong, she has collaborated with local companies on projects involving workforce scheduling, facility layout, supply chain management and public transit planning. She has published in many academic journals, has been invited as plenary speaker at major international conferences, and served on the editorial boards of the leading journals in her field.

Prior to that, she served as the Deputy Master and Dean of Students of Morningside College, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (2010-2016).
