Chaoyue Zhao was most recently at Oklahoma State University as the Jim & Lynn Williams Assistant Professor, where she worked on data-driven optimization methodologies to support strategic and operational planning in power systems management. She developed innovative data-driven approaches to enable effective decision-making under uncertainty for power system scheduling problems such as optimal power flow and unit commitment. Her analytical models advance scalable solution methods to improve cost-effectiveness, streamline daily power system operations, and mitigate system disruptions and risk.

Chaoyue has received multiple grants from the federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation, University Transportation Center and Argonne National Laboratory. She is the recipient of awards including the runner up of the Pritsker Doctoral Dissertation Award, and Energy Systems Division Outstanding Young Investigator Award in IISE.
