Dr. ZHOU Zhixin
Assistant Professor
PhD - Statistics (UCLA)


Dr. Zhou is an Assistant Professor of Management Sciences at the College of Business, City University of Hong Kong. He received his bachelor degree in applied math from UC Berkeley and Ph.D. degree in statistics from UCLA. His current research interest includes random tensor theory, minimax theory of PCA and experimental design on network data. He is also interested in information retrieval, neural ranking and generative adversarial network. 

Opportunity: We have FinTech postdoc positions available. Please check the job description hereWe also have fully funded Ph.D. positions available.
