About Me.

I am Alan Yong


I am based in Singapore. I graduated from SMU Quantitative Finance in 2013.

I used to work as a quant investment analyst at an insurance company working on systematic investment strategies.

Currently I manage Nullspace, a Technology and Robotics education business; a physical embodiment of my educational beliefs.

I believe that programming skills will play an even more important role in the coming decades. I believe that we can do more to interest students in Science. I believe that our society is too obsessed with academic results, and it is hurting our country. I believe that many of us have lost touch with creating something from scratch in our consumerist and risk-free society.

I believe in God, and that Faith and Science are two faces of reality.

This is a collection of my works and thoughts.
