I grew up in China, and went to Singapore for high school upon receiving the Singapore Ministry of Education's scholarship for foreign students. After the completion of my A-Levels, I came to the US for undergraduate studies at Columbia College in NYC, where I majored in mathematics-statistics. I graduated from college in 3 years and worked at JPMorgan as a hedge fund risk analyst. Feeling I need more challenges, I came to Stanford and am thrilled to explore the research landscape here and find my next destination.
