Washington University in St. Louis


I am a Ph.D. student in finance at Washington University in St. Louis. My research interests include asset pricing, investment strategies, asset management, machine learning and deep learning in finance, textual analysis, and high-frequency finance.

My research tries to understand the broad picture of the financial market and institutions: how expected returns vary over business cycles and across different assets, how holdings and volumes change in response to the market environment, and how heterogeneity in investors' belief plays out in trading and price formation.
