PhD Teaching Fellowship
I am currently applying model uncertainty to actuarial problems to produce robust estimates and insights for the industry. I am also interested in large portfolio losses and systemic risk in insurance and wants to conduct more research in these areas.
During my master study in China, I mainly study the topic of online financing. Specifically, I study the customer behaviour and mechanism design on crowdfunding platforms and published a paper regarding how to allocate profits properly in investment-based crowdfunding to improve success rates.
