Teaching and Curriculum Research
EdBridge is established with the primary goal of delivering the best possible educational products and services. Two things would make this goal possible: intellectual assets and the passion for passing them on. Each member of our teaching faculty comes from a different educational background, but all of us share the above two core traits.
Dr. Moroni is an agriculturalist currently based in Italy. Before starting his own farm in Tuscany, he worked as a quant for Citigroup for many years pricing financial derivatives. Prior to entering finance, he was a physics by training, having obtained his PhD in University of Amsterdam and later worked at Cambridge University as a postdoc. Despite his rather low-key appearance in the photo, Dr. Moroni is an expert in numerical methods
and computational simulation of complex model systems.

Mr Shi currently holds a prominent trading role at one of the largest investment banks in London. Besides the ups and downs of the financial market, he is a passionate mathematician. A silver medallist at the national level of Mathematics Olympiad, he went on to study maths at Peking University (the top institution for mathematics) for 4 years. This was succeeded by a further 4 years at Ecole Polytechnique, at which time Mr Shi
was awarded with a prestigious DEA and ventured into quant finance. Mr Shi is an active educator in mathematics; he tutored a few batches of pupils for Mathematics Olympiads and co-authored a book on this topic.

Dr. Li is the founder of EdBridge UK. Currently, he splits the time between EdBridge and a Computer Science teacher role at a leading independent school in London. Prior to switching into the wonderful world of education, Dr. Li devoted 7 years to the City, working for Citigroup and later a hedge fund, Citadel, also as a quant building models and software for options pricing. Dr. Li obtained his first degree in Molecular Biology, succeeded by a Cambridge MPhil and a UCL PhD, both in the field of computational biology. His graduate research work was funded and carried out at what is now the Francis Crick Institute, on the topic of simulating protein-protein interactions in a crowded cellular environment at atomic scale.
