I am a fifth-year doctoral candidate in Information Systems at Foster School of Business, University of Washington. I am grateful to be advised by Professor Yong Tan. Prior to joining UW, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Technology at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.

My research interest lies in the economics of online platforms. Specifically, I examine individuals' heterogenous behavior and model their decision-making process in a variety of contexts such as mobile gaming, fintech and sharing economy. In addition, I study the application of AI in online platforms. My research methodologies include structural modeling, applied econometrics and machine learning.
