I am a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Texas at Austin. I am passionate towards the intersection of data science, technology, and business. My research focuses on applying economic theory to model the structure of and user behavior in online networks, and then empirically evaluating our models using econometric and scientific computing methods. I primarily work at the Center for Research in Electronic Commerce, McCombs School of Business, where my thesis advisor Dr. Andrew B. Whinston is the director. Before joining UT in 2007, I received my B.A. in Economics and B.S. in Mathematics from Peking University, Beijing, China.
