What is your educational background? I graduated from the University of Michigan, where I majored in economics and statistics.

Why did you choose the MSFE program at UW-Madison? I chose this program because it has a lot of quantitative materials that allow me to strengthen my academic background in both finance and economics at the same time.

What is your favorite thing to do in Madison or what is your favorite part about living in Madison? Living in Madison is exciting because I can enjoy the lake view everyday.

What has been your favorite class or what are you most looking forward to taking? I am mostly looking forward to taking Professor Bruce Hansen’s Econometrics class and Professor Randall Wright’s Monetary Policy class.

What are your career aspirations? My primary goal is to pursue a PhD degree in finance or economics after graduation.
