Dr Yue is a Lecturer in the Engineering Systems and Design Pillar (ESD) at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

Prior to joining SUTD,  she worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Biostatistics & Modelling domain, Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, National University of Singapore (NUS). At the same time, she taught probability and statistics course at the Department of Economics, NUS.

Her research interest includes the development of statistical and machine learning methodologies, especially in the area of biomedical sciences, economics and business. Her research has been published in various renowned international journals.

Dr Yue received her Ph.D. in Statistics from NUS and Bachelor in Mathematics and Economics (with Honors) from Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
