Previously, I received two bachelor’s degrees in statistics and economics from Peking University. During my udergraduate studies, I had the pleasure to be advised by Prof. Zizhuo Wang and Prof. Weiming Zhu. Currently, I am interested in the operations of online marketplaces but I am still on my way of exploring more possibilities!
