Zhixiang Zhang


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at University of Macau. Previously,  I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Statistics and Data Science at Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, advised by Prof. Edgar Dobriban. I finshished my Ph.D. in statistics at Nanyang Technological University in 2021, under the supervision of Prof. Guangming Pan. Before my Ph.D., I received my bachelor’s degree from the School of Mathematical Sciences at University of Science and Technology of China in 2016.
