I am a financial economist interested in FinTech, Information Economics, and Macro-Finance (specifically, financial crisis and banking). I am also interested in applying state-of-the-art ML/AI algorithms to economics and finance.
I received a Finance PhD in 2021 from Washington University, where I also spent a lot of time learning Machine Learning in its Computer Science & Engineering Department. Before coming to the US, I studied at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (MPhil in Economics with a full scholarship) and Peking University (Bachelor's degrees).
