Prof. Gao received his Ph.D. and M. Phil degree from the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the Bachelor degree from the University of Science and Technology of China. He used to be the postdoctoral researcher, the lecturer and the visiting researcher in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Before he joined SHUFE, he was the research professor in the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

He is currently a committee member of the Financial Engineering and Financial Risk Management Branch of the China Operations Research Society. Professor Gao is the PI of several research projects including the National Natural Science Foundation of China. He has published several papers in top journals, like Operations Research and SIAM J. Control & Optimization.
