Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe goal is to understand how a defective ion channel leads to the human genetic disease cystic fibrosis. Studies of ion channels and ion transport involved in gland fluid transport. Methods include SSCP mutation detection and DNA sequencing, protein analysis, patch-clamp recording, ion-selective microelectrodes, electrophysiological analyses of transmembrane ion flows, isotopic metho

BioQingyun Wu is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Management Science & Engineering at Stanford University.
RESEARCH AREA: Market Design, Game Theory
Qingyun is interested in market design and game theory. In particular, he enjoy analyzing matching problems using combinatorial techniques. For example, one of his projects is investigating envy-free matchings and stable matchings through their lattice structures (Tarski's fixed point theorem etc).
Currently, he is looking to study market design problems in video games (like the match making in League of Legends, the auction house in FIFA series etc). And I am looking for research partners in this area! Feel free to contact me if you are interested.
