Ying did her master’s degree in Financial Mathematics in the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University. During the study, she developed a strong interest in the field of probability and stochastic analysis. Her dissertation was to solve PDEs using finite difference method, and apply the numerical approaches to approximate option prices. Finding how mathematical models and theories can be applied to practical problems really attracts Ying, and the MIGSAA programme gives her the opportunity to further her study in the field of stochastic analysis. In her spare time, Ying likes to read. History books are her favourite. She also enjoys bowling and ping-pong.
