Wai Lok took triple Mathematics at A-levels, holds an MPhil in Finance with a specialisation in Financial Engineering (University of Cambridge), a BSc in Mathematics with Economics (University College London) and has experience working in the financial sector and educational sector. 

Wai Lok’s research lies within the field of effective teaching practices of game theory, which increasingly is a core subject for any economics degree and a popular option for a maths degree and some social sciences degrees. Wai Lok’s research aims to explore the explanatory nature of solving for a Nash equilibrium and how well it equips undergraduate students to build intuitive insights into strategy. Wai Lok would like to answer related questions for the process of finding a Nash equilibrium and explore conditions under which such exercises are explanatory and develop intuition or the ability to apply the lessons learned.
