Ph.D in Statistics,
The QFRM programme has a well-structured curriculum, which has equipped me with solid, practical knowledge of statistical methodologies and quantitative tools that are vital for my further studies. The valuable exchange study in the University of Toronto, Canada also broadened my horizons and gave me the experience of studying in a foreign country. As an undergraduate, I was also given the opportunity to be a research assistant under the supervision of Professor Wong Hoi Ying, and was a summer intern in the financial services risk management department at Ernst & Young. I therefore experienced both the academic research life and the business of risk management from the practitioner’s point of view. After graduating, I chose to pursue a Master of Philosophy degree in Risk Management Science at CUHK. The guidance and rigorous training I was given while studying for my Master’s helped me produce two original research papers in the field of statistics, which I submitted for consideration to top-tier academic journals. I am currently studying for my PhD in Statistics at Columbia University.
