Mengchuan (Kitty) Wang joined Goizueta Business School as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Finance Area after completing her PhD in finance from the University of Melbourne in 2022. Before that, she obtained her dual master's degree in finance from Washington University in St. Louis and Singapore Management University and her bachelor's degree from the Renmin University of China majoring in finance. Her research interests are in fields of empirical asset pricing, fund performance evaluation, and machine learning. She is among the first to analyze mutual fund skills with machine learning techniques, which she uses to address model mis-specification problems associated with traditional studies. Her machine learning based approach identifies persistent timing skills for mutual funds and leads to a measure that can help investors to select good funds. Wang is a cat lover, and she likes to spend time meditating, singing, and dancing.
