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 Assoc Professor 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 tutored Business statistics at Southeast University–Monash University Joint Graduate School in Suzhou for the 2020 November intake and 2021 Semester 1 of Master of Business and Master of Banking and Finance.
I took some time to work, practising amateur applied economics because of COVID, but now I am finally back in Melbourne to continue my PhD! It is in hierarchical forecasting at Monash with Professor Rob J. Hyndman, Professor George Athanasopoulos, and Assoc Professor Anastasios Panagiotelis.
