Tao YuClass of 2015

Major: Economics, Mathematics

Currently: pursuing a PhD in Computer Science at Yale University

Future plans: continue in academia as a professor

UROP provided me with my very first research experience and gave me the opportunity to have a close connection with professors. Professor Peter Philips at the Economics Department, especially encouraged me to think critically and gave me a lot of great life advice. This mentorship makes a big difference in my research career. Although my current research area isn't in economics, it did teach me the way to conduct good research.
