About Me

I am a doctoral candidate in Economics with a Minor in Statistics at the Department of Economics at Iowa State University. My research focuses on stocks and futures trading, financial information asymmetry, and cooperatives spatial competition. I develop theoretical models to explore day trader's interaction and empirically work with large datasets to investigate futures predictive power.

I have been working as the teaching assistant, head teaching assistant, and research assistant since 2015. I am a recipient of the Iowa State University Teaching Excellence Award in 2018 and the recipient of the Barbara and Thomas Lyon Scholarship in 2019.

I previously attended Dongbei University of Finance and Economics where I studied financial engineering and I received an M.S. in Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In my free time, I trade stocks and options. I am passionate about movies and occasionally work on car projects.

I am on the job market during 2019-2020.
