I am currently a Research Engineer and PhD Candidate at Department of Industrial System Engineering and Management of National University of Singapore, supervised by Prof. Chee Yeow Meng and Prof. Andrew Lim . I work closely with Prof. Jing Tang. Before learning in NUS, I received my B.E. degree from the School of Automation, Northwestern Polytechnical University in 2017.

My research interests center around blockchain and cryptocurrency, especially token economics and decentralized systems. Besides research, I actively invest crypto startups with technical contribution and innovation in decentralization. I also advise several crypto startups and capitals.

Selected Portfolio

As a long-term believer of cryptocurrency, I actively invest in crypto venture projects with nontrivial technical contributions in decentralization, no matter in bull/bear cycle. Some of my recent interests (not limit to) are as follows.

  1. New applications in zero-knowledge proof.
  2. Miner extractable value.
  3. Novel proof mechanism / Novel economical design.
  4. “Small-and-sweet” crypto native applications.
  5. Anonymous communication/transaction.

Here are my favourite portfolio selections (altcoin).
