Before joining MS&E, I was an undergraduate student at Peking University, majoring in Computer Science and Technology with a minor in Economics. My undergraduate research mainly lies in the intersection of theoretical computer science and economics. I am motivated to observe and understand my surroundings, find the inefficiency, turn it into a theoretical problem, and design algorithms for improvements. I feel excited to pursue a PhD in MS&E for its interdisciplinary nature.
