About

I am a first year PhD student at Michael G. Foster School of Bussiness, University of Washington. I’m fortunate to work under the supervision of Professor Yong Tan.

My current research focuses on the design and evaluation of IT-enabled interventions, which can be further divided into two lines: On one hand, I am interested in how market designs/peers’ behavior intervene users’ decision-making process and thereby affect economic value/social welfare. On the other hand, I am also interested in improving statistical methods to evaluate treatment effect dynamics and further optimize policies. My research topics are quite broad, including Fintech, Online Dating/Matching, Online Healthcare, Live Streaming/Video, etc. Methodologically, I leverage econometrics, randomized field experiments, and machine learning/deep learning to analyze data and infer causality.

Before my PhD career, I studied Information Management and Information Systems at School of Economics and Mangament, Tsinghua University. I was glad to cultivate research skills under the supervision of Professor Kevin Hong and Professor Bo Li during that period.
