I am a PhD candidate in actuarial science, advised by Profs. Andrei Badescu and Sheldon Lin. My primary research interest is insurance loss modelling using statistical and machine learning methods. Prior to joining U of T, I finished my bachelor's degree in actuarial science at the University of Hong Kong. I hold the ASA and CERA designations of the Society of Actuaries.
