BSc, Pure Math, Michigan Tech University, 2004-2006

MSc, Quanitative Finance, ETH Zurich, 2007-2009

PhD, Applied Math, McGill University, 2010-2014

I completed my undergraduate education at Michigan Technological University in Pure Mathematics. The research of the math department there focuses primarily on discrete and combinatorial problems. I then completed an MSc in Quantitative Finance from ETH Zurich. My thesis topic was a numerical study of options prices driven by exponential Levy processes under a diffusion approximation for the small jumps. I am now studying under Prof. Rustum Choksi and Prof. JC Nave here at McGill. I consider generalizations of a class of geometric optimization problems known as Centroidal Voronoi Tessellations. In addition to my academic tenure, I have work experience in Risk Management of Alternative Investments as well as conducting statistical analyses and data mining projects with the massive remote sensing datasets in the atmospheric sciences.
