Memoir on mental illness: http://m.barnesandnoble.com/w/queen-of-black-square-alex-liu/1125013447?ean=9781946977953 I graduated Harvard in applied mathematics summa cum laude and interned in private equity at MidOcean Partners in New York as well as Goldman Sachs. I went on to work at Citadel, a hedge fund in Chicago where I worked on Energy trading and Quantitative Credit trading. I met with potential seeders formerly from the hedge fund Tudor on top of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange to discuss propositions but I went on to do a venture in improving my execution trading in Seattle for a year before moving home to Boston after which I went to intern in Silicon Valley for Stanford technology startup in Mountain View. I came back to Boston to volunteer for a Harvard biology lab in behavioral genetics and went on to New York to enroll in Columbia’s post-baccalaureate pre-medical program. During this time I worked at Kmart in Boston to try sales and merchandising. I published a novel called Queen of Black Square which is with Yorkshire Publishers and will be available online soon. I decided not to return to Columbia and pursue a second book project instead. However, the good news is I am working on a second book project instead. Lucas Orchard this website came about after economics proved a unifying subject for my experiences in trading.
