About Me

I am a PhD student in the RiskLab Switzerland at ETH Zurich, working under the supervision of Prof. Patrick Cheridito .

Before starting my PhD at ETH Zurich, I graduated with a first-class honours degree in Mathematical Statistics from the University of Cambridge . I also studied one year at Sorbonne University with a Paris Graduate School of Mathematics scholarship from the Fondation Science Mathématique de Paris (FSMP). The FSMP fondation is an excellence network in mathematics and fundamental computer science in Paris, founded by CNRS, ENS, Univ. Pierre et Marie Curie, Univ. Paris-Diderot, and the 4 Mathematics Chairs of Collège de France, involving 5 Fields medalists, 20 members of Academy of Science, and many recipients of national and international prizes.

I obtained my Bachelor degree from the Université Libre de Bruxelles , graduating with the best results of my promotion.

My main interests include quantitative finance, algorithmic trading, machine learning, data mining, big data, time series analysis and applied statistics.
