Visiting MSc Students from China – Mathematics and Statistics

The following post was circulated on the faculty newsletter.

Three Statistics MSc students from Zhejiang Gongshang University have visited the Centre for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Plymouth. Zhejiang Gongshang University was scored A (top 5% to 10%) for Statistics in the latest China University Subject Rankings (http://www.chinadegrees.cn/xwyyjsjyxx/xkpgjg/2016phden/index.shtml). All three students were funded by their home institution for their research visits to Plymouth for three or four months. One student is working on the statistical analysis for the impact of Brexit on Chinese stock markets, and the other two students are working on different aspects of multi-factor quantitative stock selection models. While this exchange was coordinated by Dr Yinghui Wei , the students are undertaking research projects in statistics in collaboration with various supervisors, including Drs Rana Moyeed, Matthew Craven, Alessandro Cardinali and Yinghui Wei. As a result of the visit, one of the students has submitted his draft paper to the Journal of Systems Science and Complexity (Springer) for publication.
