The Centre for Risk Research attracted me for its broad diversity of research methodologies. People from different backgrounds in the Centre bring in fresh ideas and inspire each other. It is a great experience to work in this group.

My research interests lie in using advanced machine learning methods to profile traders’ decision-making processes in the retail financial market. The aim being to ensure that market makers can effectively quantify their risk.  I was awarded a bachelor degree in  Electronic Information Engineering from University of Science and Technology of China (2:1 equivalent), and then graduated from Imperial College London with a Distinction (second place in class) in MSc Quantitative Biology. I used to work on programming trading on the futures market in Shanghai Junsheng Asset Management Corporation. 

My Ph.D. supervisors  are  Professor Johnnie JohnsonProfessor Ming-Chien Sung, and Dr Tiejun Ma.
