Fangzhou was born in China and grew up in Beijing. She got her bachelor's degree in accounting from Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE). However, she realized her passion for economics during her undergraduate degree. This led her to pursue her Masters degree in Economics at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Actually, she is now one of five PhD students currently in our program who have completed their Masters degree in Economics at the University of Wisconsin Madison.
An interesting fact about Fangzhou is that she loves to go fishing in the video game Animal Crossing!
