Short Bio

Hi! I'm a 3rd year Ph.D. candidate from AdONE (Advanced Optimization in a Networked Economy), a training community targeting the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and management science, at the Technical University of Munich, in Germany. I got my master's degree from the University of Tokyo, Japan, and spent years as a research assistant at the National Institute of Informatics, Japan. My background fills in applied economics and theoretical computer science by these experiences. 

I'm currently involved in many practical market analysis/design problem projects. I have a deep interest in utilizing mathematical modeling and computing techniques (and AI) in market research, though not limited to
•    Methodology: Stochastic Optimization, Agent-based Simulation, Reinforcement Learning;
•    Application: Platform Economics (i.e., Information Design, Pricing Policy), Matching Theory.

Outside of research, I have my own media channels (Bilibili, Weibo) at several largest video-sharing websites in China. Sometimes I do vlogs to record my life, and I'm more inspired in spreading knowledge related to operations research applications.
