From the Desk of Hong Chen, PhD '91


Dear Friend, 

I am delighted to be hosting a special dinner with Nobel Laureate Dr. Chen Ning Yang and Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD on behalf of our alma mater, the State University of New York at Stony Brook. This dinner, on Saturday, March 9 at 7 PM at the JE Mansion in Beijing, will introduce Stony Brook’s campaign to endow a professorship in honor of Dr. Yang.

All of us benefited from the doors Dr. Yang opened between China and the United States, and from the education we received at Stony Brook.  I cannot think of a more fitting way to say thank you.

Mohit Verma ’12 Wins Worldwide Investing Contest

Mohit Verma ’12 Wins Worldwide Investing Contest

Mohit Verma, a double major in Information Systems and Applied Mathematics and Statistics, was the winner of the top prize’s “University Challenge,” a wolrldwide virtual investing competition that that ended in December. Mohit was awarded $10,000 for graduate school and an eight-week internship with Amplified Trading, a hedge fund in London, after he edged out 10,000 other active traders remaining in the one-month competition.

“There were 25 or 30,000 participants at the beginning,” says Mohit, who graduated in December. “They were from universities all around the world. It was a very intense competition, very high-pressure.”

…If he goes with Citigroup, an investment bank, Mohit a will be working on the technology trading site. And after that? He shrugs and says he’s not worried. Meanwhile, he’s enjoying his status as TopTrader’s top university trader, bar none.





‘I worked hard for this,” he admits. ‘It feels really good.”
