PhD in Management, Finance
During the entrance interview, I learned from the two professors that they value passion and curiosity, which was in sharp contrast to the pure emphasis on execution ability that I had mostly been trained for and coincided with my own belief on what makes a real researcher. I felt Laurier could provide great support for me in changing from “look good” to “be good,” a transition that I had longed for. It does happen. I appreciate the flexibility and openness, as well as the understanding and intuition that everyone here provides, from which my own thoughts could be gradually developed with no pressure.
There are several things that attract my attention. One is about behavioural bias: how irrationality is able to exist in a rational competitive market and what ramifications it could follow. Another is derivatives: multiple assets are based on the same underlying— the “mirror relationship” between these interconnected assets naturally embed information, then what is embedded and how it could be used. The last one is on-going new stuff, for instance, big-data revolution, CSR, market fragmentation, etc.
I am interested in teaching and research in academia. I want to keep exposed to young people, new ideas, and cutting-edge research.
