I am an incoming Ph.D. student at the finance group of the MIT Sloan School of Management. I am interested in FinTech, entrepreneurship & innovation, and labor & technology. I have worked as a research assistant studying the bitcoin blockchain at MIT after receiving M.S. Statistics from the University of Chicago in July 2019. Before that, I was a machine learning engineer at Cardinal Operations/SHUFE-RIIS in Shanghai, China. From 2014 to 2017, I studied Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and received a B.S. degree with summa cum laude and departmental honors. I published a large-scale machine learning optimization algorithm in IEEE Trans. Signal Process. with Dr. Kun Yuan and Professor Ali H. Sayed at UCLA. I am from Zhengzhou, China.
