I’m Fin. Welcome to my site 🐟
My name is Yangzhuoran Yang, but usually I let people call me Fin as that’s easier if you don’t speak Chinese.
I did my Honours in Econometrics at Monash in 2019. The project I’ve been working on is about portfolio selection in a stochastic control setting with Dr Bonsoo Koo and Dr Dan Zhu. I am also working part-time for them as a research assistant. The works I’ve done are mostly related to R programming and data manipulation. You can find the software I have contributed here.
I have also done lab supervising for the unit of Business and economic statistics at Monash in 2019, and some private tutoring on Econometrics related courses for a few years. In 2020 I will be tutoring Applied Econometrics.
I am current working on some optimisation problem with Professor Ziping Zhao at ShanghaiTech SIST. If you haven’t heard about the uni, it’s a relatively new uni in Shanghai, and it’s really good. This work has produced a reduced-rank regression estimation package RRRR, a conference paper and an upcoming talk at IEEE SAM 2020.
I am still stuck here in China because of the coronavirus, but I’m gonna start my PhD anyway, otherwise it’s gonna be a threat to both my body and sanity. My PhD is going to be in hierarchical forecasting at Monash with Professor Rob J. Hyndman, Professor George Athanasopoulos, and Assoc Professor Anastasios Panagiotelis.
