Dean YaoOperations and Technology Management

Dean comes from the sagebrush desert of eastern Washington and is excited to join the Erdmann Center for Operation and Technology Management. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering, he has spent several years working as a power plant engineer across the country, interrupted by a brief stint in the D.C. area as salesman's assistant. Dean hopes to supplement his technical background with Wisconsin's business education. He looks forward to rejoining the workforce in two years to continue his career in the power industry. Dean graduated from Purdue University. In his spare time, he enjoys travelling, long hikes, and cooking (badly).
