More about me
I grew up in Xuzhou, China. After high school, I attended college in the beautiful and mountainous Chinese University of Hong Kong, where I learned a lot of statistics, some finance, limited Cantonese, and worked with some wonderful mentors. Somewhat unusually, I also spent a summer selling hot dogs, corns, dippin dots, and making gigantic cotton candies at Schlitterbahn waterpark in New Braunfels, Texas.
My free time (before 2020) was mostly split between local coffee shops, gyms and running trails. I spent a summer with the microeconomics group at Microsoft Research as a research intern. We won the 2016 Microsoft summer basketball league championship despite my constant shooting struggles. I have been a fan of the Houston Rockets (for many years) and the Seattle Seahawks (since moving to Seattle).
