Harvard/MIT Finance and Statistics Tutor

Economics - Finance - Statistics I am a PhD student at Harvard studying financial economics/finance. Prior to my PhD, I was a portfolio manager at a quantitative hedge fund focusing on options trading. I received my undergraduate degree from MIT in mathematics with minors in economics and management. I have deep expertise in programming using languages such as C++ and R. My research is focused on using statistics/econometrics to analyze empirical financial data to better understand how inve... [more]


Microsoft Excel

I have used the entire MS Office package of products extensively for school and work (roughly 15 years).


Statistics

I conduct empirical research in financial economics with a significant amount of statistical rigor and sophistication. However, I am particularly good at boiling down complicated statistical math to simple intuition.


SQL

I have used SQL for empirical research for many years.


Economics

I have passed qualifying exams in business economics as part of my PhD.


Finance

I am currently a PhD student at HBS; previously was a portfolio manager at a large multi strat hedge fund.

Econometrics

I have taken Foundations of Econometrics (2110), Intro to Applied Econometrics (2120), Financial Econometrics (2146), Time Series Analysis (2142), and other PhD level courses in econometrics at Harvard. I have also published original research making heavy use of statistical methods.


Linear Algebra

I received an A in MIT linear algebra course and use it extensively for my research. I also used it during my econometrics training in graduate school.


Linux

I use Linux very frequently on the cloud for my research. Specifically, I use R on linux boxes to analyze data and run multi-process parallel analysis of large data sets. I am familiar with SLURM and LSF as job scheduling agents on linux.


MATLAB

I used Matlab as part of my coursework at Harvard for statistics. I have also used Matlab at work to analyze financial instruments and make investment decisions.


UNIX

I use a flavor of Unix to conduct empirical finance research. I am adapt at job scheduling on Unix using LSF and SLURM. I am also very skilled in using R along with various packages.
