Hangcheng Zhao @ Wharton

My name is Hangcheng Zhao, and I am a fourth-year Ph.D. in quantitative marketing at the the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania. I work on pricing. My research goal is to understand how firms can leverage various algorithms to increase their profits, assess the impacts on pricing and information in the market, and recommend strategies to sellers, platform managers, and policymakers. Previously, I received my Bachelor’s degree from Tsinghua Unversity and Master’s degree from the University of Chicago.
