     I was born in Chongqing and raised in Chengdu, China. I had my senior middle school education at Chengdu No. 7 High school. Then, I attended School of Mathematical 
     Science at Beijing Normal University in 2005 and got my Bachelor's degree of Science in Statistics in June 2009. Then, I went to Guanghua School of Management at
     Peking University for PhD study under the supervision of Prof. Song Xi Chen. I obtained the Doctor degree of Philosophy in Economics in July 2013. From September 2013
     to Feburary 2017, I had a research fellow position in Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Melbourne under supervision of the late Prof. Peter Hall.
     Now, I am an Associate Professor of Statistics and Econometrics at Southwestern University of Finance and Economics.
