Jun Yan



Currently I am working at D. E. Shaw as a quantitative researcher for systematic trading.

I got my Ph.D. degree in Statistics from Stanford University in June 2020, advised by
Professor Amir Dembo. Before coming to Stanford, I was major in mathematics and statistics
in School of Mathematical Sciences at Peking University.

My research interests span high dimensional statistics, probability theory, and machine learning.
