I am a PhD candidate at the University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Prof. Bruno C. d. S. Oliveira.
My research revolves around programming languages, especially focusing on type systems that reconcile object-oriented and functional programming.
I received my Bachelor's degree from Chu Kochen Honors College of Zhejiang University in 2019.
I was an exchange student at Tokyo Institute of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Hidehiko Masuhara in 2017.
During my undergraduate years, I was the founder of ZJU Apple Club.
I led the development of Qiushichao Mobile for iOS, which has been the most popular campus app at Zhejiang University.
My Chinese name is 孫耀珠.
Since Chinese characters are also used in Japanese and Korean, my name can be pronounced そんようじゅ in Japanese or 손요주 in Korean, both of which can be romanized as Yoju Son.
If you think the Chinese romanization Yaozhu Sun hard to read, feel free to pronounce my name in Japanese or Korean style.
