Dawei Zhang

MS in Financial Engineering

"Dawei joined our M.S. in Financial Engineering program in 2017, after obtaining a B.S. degree in statistics and a B.B.A. degree in financial management from Sun Yat-sen University in China.

Dawei has a broad academic interest in many topics. His undergraduate research was to analyze how high-frequency trading impacts market quality. Motivated by the internship experience with Shenzhen Stock Exchange, his more recent interest focuses on behavioral finance and risk contagion through financial networks.

In the coming summer, he will be joining Morgan Stanley as a quantitative finance summer analyst in the emerging markets credit team."
