Teaching Statement

My main motivation for pursuing a career in academia instead of industry is that I love teaching and interacting with students.

Teaching for Extracurricular Activity

From 2017 to 2019, I put many efforts on supporting students attending mathematical modeling contests. As a faculty advisor, I am so proud that our students made great achievements in such contests under my guidance:

  • First Prize of the fourteenth China Post-Graduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling (CPMCM 2017), ranked top ten out of 10468 teams.

  • One Outstanding Award (also ASA Data Insights Award) of MCM/ICM (Mathematical Contest in Modeling and Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling) 2019.

  • Five Meritorious Awards of MCM /ICM from 2017 to 2019.
