General Background

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Business Administration at University of Illinois at Chicago. My dissertation advisors are Professor Lan Zhang (from UIC) and Professor Per Mykland (from University of Chicago). I received my B.S. degree in Statistics from Nankai University, Tianjin, P.R. China, in 2012. I was a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science and Information System Program at University of Colorado at Denver from 2012 to 2014. I was an exchange scholar at Department of Statistics, University of Chicago from 2015 to 2016. I received the Stevanovich Student Fellowship for 2018 from the Stevanovich Center for Financial Mathematics, University of Chicago.
