A picture of my face.

It’s my jolly face!

I play with code and pianos.

I am a PhD student at the University of Oregon studying finance. I have a master’s in finance from the ICMA Centre at the Henley Business School (which itself is part of the University of Reading), and a BSc in Technical Theater from Southern Oregon University. I’m a developer for Turing.jl, a probabilistic programming tool.

My interests are pretty broad in finance, but in general I tend to favor situations where technology is involed (with some classic asset pricing stuff too):

  • Market microstructure
  • Cryptocurrency
  • AI in financial markets
  • Dynamic asset pricing

More computer science/statistics interests:

  • Probabilistic programming
  • Bayesian methods for big data
  • Reinforcement learning

Favorite programming languages:

  • Julia because it’s fast and fun to write!
  • Rust because someone told me I should learn C and I thought this was cooler.
  • R because I am a masochist.
  • Mathematica because I forget how to take derivatives.

I do however flit between interests like a pixie, so this list is likely not current by the time you are reading it.
