Hello, everyone, I’m very glad to have chance to share one month with you all. My research interests mainly focus on the Micro-Simulation of individual behavior in social systems based on individual-level models, which simulate the interactions between individuals to obtain complex phenomena. In the past two years, I was familiar with the problems in diffusion of innovation, financial market, epidemiology and etc. Recently, I mainly study micro-modeling of consumer’s behaviors in diffusion of innovation and new products. The research is based on individual-level models, such as CA and MAS.

In my off time, I love treking, rock-climing, cooking and basketball. If you have the same hobbies, or just like chinese food, you must have to remember me. You won't be disappointed, or at least your stomach.
