I am a first-year finance Ph.D. student at MIT Sloan School of Management with research interests in fintech, entrepreneurship & innovation, and labor & technology. I worked as a research assistant at MIT, constructed a comprehensive bitcoin blockchain transaction database with Professor Antoinette Schoar, and studied bank lending standards with Professor Jonathan Parker. 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 studied large-scale machine learning optimization algorithms. A native of Zhengzhou, China, I constantly miss hulatang (a spicy soup).
