Xuedong He received the B.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics from Peking University in 2005 and the Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Finance from the University of Oxford in 2009. He was an assistant professor at Columbia University in 2009 – 2015 and joined the Chinese University of Hong Kong as an associate professor in 2016.

Xuedong He’s research interests include behavioral finance and economics, risk management, stochastic control, and financial technology. He has published papers in leading journals such as Management Science, Operations Research, Mathematical Finance, and Mathematics of Operations Research. He is serving as Associate Editors for Operations Research, Mathematics and Financial Economics, Operations Research Letters, and Digital Finance. He also organized clusters and sessions in international conferences such as the INFORMS Annual Meetings and SIAM Financial Mathematics and Engineering Conferences.
