I am a first-year finance Ph.D. student at MIT Sloan School of Management, interested in fintech, innovation, and labor. As a predoc research assistant, I constructed a comprehensive bitcoin blockchain database with Professors Antoinette Schoar and Igor Makarov, and studied bank lending standards with Professor Jonathan Parker at MIT. I received M.S. in Statistics from the University of Chicago in 2019 after working as an algorithm engineer in Shanghai, China. From 2014 to 2017, I studied mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where I researched large-scale optimization algorithms. A native of Zhengzhou, China, I constantly miss hulatang (a spicy soup).
