Ning (Steve) Lu graduated magna cum laude from Boston College with a Bachelor of Arts in computer science with honors, a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics and a minor in economics. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Steve’s passion lies at the junction of machine learning and financial markets. During his undergraduate study, Steve wrote his honor thesis titled “A Machine Learning Approach to Automated Trading,” for which he developed a trading system based on technical analysis and algorithms such as Naïve Bayes and Random Forest using Matlab. He interned at LIG Capital Management, a long/short equity hedge fund in New York, where he covered the U.S. oil and solar industry using fundamental approach. Looking to combine machine learning and fundamental analysis, Steve joined the MSCF program to build stronger quantitative skills and to pursue a career in portfolio management.
