Jianhua Zhou is the PhD candidate in the Economics Department who mainly focuses on research related to nonparametric regression research.

Currently his researches fall into two categories: Inefficient frontier analysis of cross-section data set and robust method exploration. The first category tends to apply inefficient frontier analysis method to semi-nonparametric and nonparametric models.The robust method exploration concerns about improving nonparametric method performance under contamination data set by introducing new robust functions based on cross-validation method.

He also holds a master degree in Mathematical Finance, which investigates in fixed income models and portfolios management by software platforms such as Python and Excel.
