Prof. ZHANG Gongqiu receives his Bachelor degree in physics from Peking University in 2013 and PhD degree in 2017 from the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. After that, he served as an assistant professor at Wuhan University. Prof. Zhang joined The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen in October 2018. His research focuses on developing realistic models that capture key features of financial data, and computationally efficient algorithms with solid theoretical foundation for a range of problems, including option pricing and hedging, financial risk management, model calibration, prediction and Monte Carlo simulation. He is also interested in utilizing deep learning methods for solving financial engineering problems.
