New Faces at University Apartments – January 2021

Chris Li PortraitChris Li
Resident Manager, University Houses

Hi neighbors! I am Chris Li (李越), the new resident manager for the University Houses. I come from the homeland of Confucius, Shandong, China, and I’m currently a PhD candidate in economics. I hold a MS degree in economics at UW-Madison and a BS degree in mathematics at Nankai University. My current research, in a nutshell, combines mathematics and game theory to investigate contemporary issues in business and marketing.

During the summer days, I enjoy jogging along The Lakeshore Path in the evenings. I also play badminton in my spare time. I am a huge fan of Pokémon (main series, Pokémon Go, trading cards, etc.). I take pride in my complete collection of all Pikachu cards, including all the vintage and most sought after ones.

I am excited to serve and contribute to this vibrant and culturally diverse community! I eagerly look forward to meeting our neighbors after the pandemic. You can reach me at
