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 on this site.
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 at ShanghaiTech SIST as a visiting student with Professor Ziping Zhao. If you haven’t heard about the uni, it’s a relatively new uni here in Shanghai, and it’s really good.
I will be starting my PhD in hierarchical forecasting at Monash in 2020 with Professor Rob J. Hyndman, Professor George Athanasopoulos, and Assoc Professor Anastasios Panagiotelis. Hopefully all goes well.
