I have a PhD in Financial Econometrics and MSc in Finance from Imperial College London, and a BA in Economics from Cambridge University. My PhD specialised in long memory stochastic processes for high frequency data. I also have extensive experience in Matlab, C++, MQL4 and SQL.

 

Post-PhD I have worked on building and selling my own trading systems and software, and training clients to enable them to understand quantitative subjects such as Finance, Econometrics, Mathematics and Programming.
