Time at KU and before

I was a foreign high school exchange student at Kingman High School in Kingman, KS.

After graduating from high school, I went to The University of Kansas for my bachelor’s degree. I spent two years studying Accounting and switched my major to Business Analytics in the senior year. In November of 2019, I joined a team of three and won second place in the H&R Block machine learning competition at KU. In spring 2020, I was hired as a teaching assistant of the certificate program in analytics, which was designed for the executives of Sprint Corporation. At the same time, I also worked as an undergraduate research assistant for Dr. Karthik Srinivasan, tasked with a text mining project in accounting and a neural network project to predict the disease for the high-cost patient at the point of admission.

During my time at KU, I also served as the promotion chair and president of the KU Chinese Students and Scholars Friendship Association, leading a team of 20 students to help new Chinese students integrate into the KU community and organize multiple cultural events. In September of 2018, I received the certificate of appreciation signed by Mr. Hong, the former Consul General of China to Chicago.

I worked as a business development intern for China Telecom Americas from my junior year to senior year. I was primarily reponsible for direct selling, customer service, and data analytics.

From April of 2019 to May of 2020, I worked at Happy Learning as a basketball coach. The players were aged from kindergarten to middle school. In the summer of 2019, I also started my own managenent consulting business in Shanghai, China

Time at ASU

In October of 2020, I led a team of three in the Humana-Mays Healthcare Case Competition, and the final submission was ranked top 50 in the national round. In the same month, I started to work at the Actionable Analytics Lab at W.P. Carey Business School under the supervision of Dr. Victor Benjamin. In the following month, I was assigned to an applied capstone project for Adidas to help implement a full social media analytics pipeline. It was a six month project. During the project, I was responsible to build a decision support system by conducting natural language processing with word2vec and SBERT, social network analysis with node2vec, etc. On April 28th, we presented the data science team from Adidas to highlight actionable insights and the functionality of the system we developed.

Post graduation

On May 3rd of 2021, I graduated from Arizona State University with an M.S. degree in Business Analytics (Stem qualified). Shortly after graduation, I joined the Dr. Srinivasan’s team again and worked as an adjunct researcher since then.

In August of 2021, I joined the Smart Funding Inc., working on data enhancement and algorithm development of projects that help the underserved and underrepresented communities. Starting September of 2021, I worked at Walmart Global Tech as a data scientist focusing on improving the customer shopping experience.
