Actuarial Science, Statistics, and Mathematics professor at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington. Graduated from the University of Connecticut (Ph.D. and M.S. in Math & Actuarial Science). From Taiwan with B.S. degree in Pure Math from National Taiwan University, I have taught over two decades at UCONN, UW-Eau Claire, and CWU Math combined. Worked for Aetna ING in Hartford, Connecticut, the capital city of insurance, and the System Engineering Department of I.I.I. (Institute for Information Industry), the leading pioneer of information industry and science and technology development founded in 1979 in Taipei, Taiwan. I have been a member of the Society of Actuaries since 1994 and served as council member (2013-2017) and chair (2017) of SOA Education & Research Section as well as presenter and panelist since 2002.
