Welcome to my personal webpage!

I am currently a PhD student in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at University of Sydney under the supervision of Prof. Marek, Rutkowski.


I was born and raised in Fuzhou, China and came to Sydney, Australia in 1995. After 3 years in Sydney, I went on and spent most of my teenager years in Singapore before coming back to Sydney in 2004 to attend University of New South Wales, where I completed my undergraduate studies and started my PhD. In 2010, following my supervisor, I came to University of Sydney. I speak fluent Chinese, English and really bad (if not any) Japanese and French.

Research Interest

My research interest is in the area of stochastic processes and their applications in finance. I am currently working on constructions of random times from a given supermartingale and also generic market models for forward swap rates and credit default spreads.
