I am a Lecturer in Finance at NBS. I had previously taught at London's Middlesex University Business School (2010–2012).

I hold a BSc in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics from Wuhan University, an MSc in Finance from Durham University, and a PhD in Finance from Cass Business School, City University London.

My research interests focus on asset pricing and corporate finance. For asset pricing, which I have been working on since my PhD time, I particularly interested in two market microstructure factors: information asymmetry and liquidity. I have also extended my research scope to corporate finance. I am currently working on a couple of papers in Mergers and Acquisitions.
