Career

now - May-2018
Quantitative analyst
Hedge Fund
Apr-2018 - Apr-2017
Associate Quant in electronic FX
Bank of America Merrill Lynch
I worked as a part of a systematic electronic FX desk which uses algorithms to make a foreign exchange market. My key responsibilities include testing for possible problems in the market data we receive and the prices we send out, as well as providing market analysis for potential extensions of existing strategies.
Apr-2017 - Nov-2016
EPSRC Postdoc
King's College London
This postdoc involved working on multilevel Monte-Carlo methods for Lévy process, with applications to option pricing in finance.
Nov-2016 - Jun-2014
EPSRC Postdoc
University of Bath
In this postdoc I have worked on Lévy processes and self-similar Markov processes. These class of processes have a large range of applications from statistical physics to mathematical finance. Along side this work, I have pursued my own research which was in random graphs, statistical physics models and models in evolutionary biology, and extended my academic network by working with several independent researchers.
Oct-2014 - Oct-2010
Ph.D. in Mathematics
University of Cambridge
My Ph.D. is in probability theory, specifically working with discrete models, random graphs, mixing time of random walks and processes related to evolutionary biology.
