Hey there! I’m Allen Wang and this is my personal website. I call this online hub of mine Allen’s Whiteboard ‘cause I really enjoy drafting here anything I’m interested in. I finished my undergrad with a B.A. in Mathematical Economics from Fudan University in China, and a B.S. in Econometrics and Operations Research from de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen in Netherlands. Guess you’re wondering why on earth would a man go for two degrees across the whole Eurasia Plate. I don’t quite know, either. Human beings are notorious for changing their “lifelong persuit” all their entire life. I’ve known how economists would use game theory to explain a trade-war. I’ve seen how econometricians and statisticians argue over p-value (and agree on time-series analysis). I’ve even tried to solve real-life ward allocation as an ill-posed optimization problem. But eventually, it turns out that I’m most excited after designing a successful poker AI following game theory, that I’m more keen on predicting price dynamics regardless of method, and that I modeled the ward problem as a high-dimensional flappy bird game and solved it with reinforcement learning. Late 2018, I jumped onto the flight to America and received a M.S. in Financial Mathematics from the University of Chicago the second year. I’m currently a quant in a propriatary trading firm based in Chicago. I play poker, ping pong and backetball. I also spend hours on competitive gaming every week with my pals. I’m a certified saxophone player with over 15 years of experience and an amateur gastronome doing experiments in his kitchen every single day.

这里是汪洋的个人主页。本人来自银河系料酒之乡浙江绍兴，现居芝加哥，苦于考不出驾照所以待业在家，每日靠做饭和刷 B 站维生。偶尔吹萨克斯，也会画一点画（譬如这个网站的头像）、打一点球，但都不是很精通；业余帮本地一家小公司炒炒股，所幸还没被开除。我在人生的前四分之一认识了了很多有意思的人，比如著名算法科学家毛毛和（全球）知名浪逼嘉哥；也遇到过不少糟心的事，譬如强迫自己在复旦学经济。我是一个很普通的人，梦想有朝一日能上火星，持有但非常怀疑比特币，同理 for 大部分机器学习，打狼人不擅长悍跳，打 WOW 只会武僧，平生最害怕的事情是打游戏碰上猪队友、下班瞬间发现代码有 bug、买了好多食材最后过期和别人问我“为什么你头像是一个红色的电话亭”（历时三年我终于换掉了这个头像）。你或许已经发现（或许没有）我有一点点强迫症，所以如果你发现我的博客有什么地方出现了问题，请一定一定告诉我：你可以通过邮件联系我，也可以点击 Edit 按钮直接提交 PR 到我的 GitHub，谢谢。最后，允许我假装文青地送一句诗给你（别问我为什么是这句，刷新一下页面你就知道了）：
