Doctoral Candidate - Doctor of Philosophy


I did my Bachelor degree here at the University of Auckland in Applied Mathematics and Operations Research From 2012 to 2014. After coming back from the exchange at UCLA, I finished my Honours degree in Statistics with Fist Class Honours. Currently I am doing researches on estimating covariance matrix with Dr. Yong Wang.

Gap Properties of Brownian Motion on the Two-Dimensional Unit Torus (Honours Dissertation)


Mar. 2015 - Nov. 2015

We are interested in the tail distribution of the global largest radius in the complement of the Brownian motion on two-dimensional unit torus. We want to study this tail distribution using simulations. We generate a large number of simulations and attempt to fit the data with power-law distributions using two different approaches and test the validity of these two methods.
