Research

I'm currently working on Markov Decision Processes (MDPs), Markov Chain, Value-at-Risk (VaR) and their applications in finance.

Background

I graduated from Dalian University of Technology in China with bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering. I worked on multi-objective optimization with heuristic algorithms (genetic algorithm, differential evolution algorithm and etc.). The algorithms are mainly focus on high-dimension problems with a hybrid solution space. In the first two years of my PhD study, I worked on electroencephalogram (EEG) experiment, working memory and cognitive load theory. Now I'm working on Markov Chain and its extension, MDPs, which is a mathematical framework for sequential decision-making.
