Under the auspices of CDAR, five SWUFE undergraduate students visit the Economics Department at Berkeley each year. The first cohort of visitors arrived in Berkeley for the Spring 2018 semester. As part of the visit, they participated in a research project run by Robert Anderson and CDAR postdoc Dangxing Chen. The five students also participated in two separate teams in the Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM) sponsored by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) http://www.comap.com/undergraduate/contests/.
The team of Shiyu (Lucas) Liu, Hanyao Shen, and Guizhong (Kate) Wan was a Meritorious Winner, placing among the top 10% of all participating teams.
Xiaoyu Chen and Ming Liu joined with another SWUFE student, Yuetong (Annie) Chen, who was visiting the Haas School of Business at Berkeley; their team won Honorable Mention.
